Colchester United Preview – Can the U’s avoid a third straight defeat?

Colchester United have endured another tough season in the fourth tier. After Hayden Mullins’ departure in January, the U’s are still searching for his permanent replacement. In the meantime, Wayne Brown has taken charge of the team.

Colchester recently won two in a row, which ended a six-game winless run. However, after the victories over Port Vale and Scunthorpe United, the Essex club have since fallen to back-to-back losses to Bristol Rovers and Forest Green Rovers.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 1128 GMT, Friday 25 March)

Colchester are in no real danger of going down, but the U’s will not relax until survival is mathematically certain. Can they get back on track with a positive result here?

Tranmere Rovers Preview – Will the Whites extend undefeated run to four?

Promotion chasing Tranmere Rovers recently went five league games without a win, collecting just one point from a possible 15. The poor run seriously damaged their promotion hopes, but the Merseyside outfit have got back on track since.

Tranmere have gone on to take seven points from the last nine on offer. The much-needed win over Mansfield Town on 11th March was their first success since February. They followed that up with a 2-0 win over Harrogate Town before drawing 1-1 at Sutton United last time out.
