Colchester United Preview – Will the Essex boys pick up their second win?

Hayden Mullins’ Colchester United have been hard to beat this season, but the Essex club have also only managed to secure one win. So far, the U’s have won one, lost one and drawn three of their opening five League Two matches.

United are unbeaten in their last three in the league, drawing two and winning one. Colchester picked up their first League Two victory of the season on 21st August, with Freddie Sears and Noah Chilvers netting in a 2-1 away victory at Oldham Athletic. They then drew 1-1 at Rochdale last time out.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1249 GMT, Friday 3 September)

Colchester have taken just one point from their opening two on their own patch, so Mullins and his side will be targeting all three points from this one. At the time of writing, the Colchester win is available at 11/8.

Sutton United Preview – Can last term’s National League champions pick up first league victory?

Matt Gray’s Sutton United were excellent in the National League last season, fully deserving their promotion to the EFL as title winners. The Amber and Chocolates picked up 25 wins and finished with an impressive 84 points to their name.

Staying in League Two will be the ultimate goal for Sutton this season, but they could do with a win after two defeats and two draws so far. After opening up with a 2-1 loss at Forest Green Rovers, United drew with Salford City and Scunthorpe United. Last time out, though, they were beaten at home by Oldham Athletic.
