Colchester United Preview – Can Colchester return to winning ways?

Despite sitting mid-table in League Two in 12th place and failing to win their last three matches in the fourth tier, Colchester United have reason to be confident ahead of this encounter against Grimsby Town as the hosts still remain unbeaten on home turf.

Two draws against Mansfield Town and Crawley Town with a heavy 6-1 thrashing away from home at Exeter City have prevented Colchester from moving up the League Two table but a solid home record of 5-2-0 14/7 places The U’s in a good position to bounce back with a win here.

Overall, Colchester are unbeaten in their last eight matches at home in League Two which includes notable wins against Exeter City and Forest Green Rovers, so the hosts look a decent bet to return to winning ways at good odds.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Grimsby Town Preview – Can Grimsby pull away from lower reaches?

A heavy 4-1 loss at home to Exeter City last time out in midweek in League Two did nothing for Grimsby Town’s ambitions to put further daylight between themselves and the relegation zone and they now face a very tough looking trip down to Essex for Saturday evening’s clash at Colchester.

Grimsby have posted mixed results throughout this new League Two campaign and accordingly sit in the lower half of the division but interestingly, the majority of success to date for The Mariners has actually come on their travels.

The visitors have won three of their four wins in total on the road with victories at Cheltenham Town, Leyton Orient and Crawley Town, so they’re certainly no pushovers but this will be a good test to see how strong the Cleethorpes outfit are on the road.
