Colchester United welcome Tranmere Rovers to the Colchester Community Stadium for an EFL League Two fixture on Tuesday night. Rovers are pushing for automatic promotion, while the U’s hover just above the relegation zone, so the midweek matchup in Essex is a huge one for both clubs. Can Colchester end their winless run, or will in-form Tranmere return to Merseyside with maximum points?

Colchester United Preview – Another blank for the Essex outfit?

Colchester United, who are under the interim management of Wayne Brown, are without a win in five. Since a 2-1 home victory over Carlisle United on 2nd March, the Essex club have drawn two and lost three, failing to score in all five. Steve Ball was relieved of his duties in late February.

Colchester are on a retched run of form at the minute. In fact, that narrow victory over Carlisle at the start of the month remains their only success since a 1-0 win at Scunthorpe United way back on 8th December.

Our betting prediction:
Tranmere to win to nil

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1612 GMT, Monday 22 March)

The U’s are down in 22nd spot at present, though they are seven points behind Southend United and ten points above bottom club Grimsby Town. With the pressure on, Brown’s boys could do with a positive result from this one.

Tranmere Rovers Preview – Huge three points for Hill’s troops?

Tranmere Rovers were relegated from the curtailed 2019-20 EFL League One campaign, but the Super White Army have no plans on staying in the Football League’s bottom tier for long.

Rovers are in fourth place at present, collecting 61 points from 35 fixtures. The Merseysiders are level on points with third-place Forest Green Rovers, who they play on the penultimate weekend of the season.

Keith Hill has done a stunning job at Prenton Park since taking over in November. Tranmere have been superb since the turn of the year, winning a staggering ten of 15 League Two matches to fire themselves into automatic promotion contention.

Colchester United vs Tranmere Rovers Betting Advice

This will be the first meeting between the two clubs since the 2018-19 League Two season. After a 1-1 draw at Prenton Park, Tranmere picked up a solid 2-0 win at the Colchester Community Stadium, with James Norwood and David Perkins getting the goals.

Tranmere are unbeaten in their last six meetings with the Essex club, winning five and drawing one. Colchester’s last victory was a 4-2 home success back in April 2012.


Key Facts – Colchester United vs Tranmere Rovers Betting Tip

  • Colchester have won only one of the last nine meetings between the clubs
  • The U’s have picked up just one win since early December
  • Tranmere have not lost an away league match in 2021


Tranmere are in red-hot form and look a good bet to gate-crash the automatic promotion party in League Two come the end of the season. Hill’s boys should ease past the strugglers in Essex on Tuesday night. Back the visitors to win both halves of this one at 8/1.

Colchester have not scored since Callum Harriot netted against Carlisle on 2nd March. United have gone on to draw five blanks in a row. With that in mind, take a punt on Tranmere to win to nil on Tuesday at 11/4.
