Colchester United Preview – Can Colchester halt slide?

A worrying eight-match sequence without a win in League Two has resulted in Friday night’s hosts, Colchester United, sliding down the table to 15th place following four draws and four defeats in recent times.

Although Colchester have picked up points in draws with Port Vale, Cheltenham Town, Cambridge United and Stevenage, The U’s have also slipped to defeats against Cambridge United (away), Morecambe (home and away) and Southend United, so confidence is not at its highest right now.

That said, Colchester possess a solid looking home record which stands at 6-4-1 18/11 but although the hosts started in bright fashion, winning six of their opening seven matches at home, they’ve since drawn three of their last five matches.

Our betting suggestion:
Over 2.5 goals

Scunthorpe United Preview – Can Iron win three on trot?

Following three defeats on the trot in League Two, Friday’s visitors, Scunthorpe United, have bounced back in style by winning back-to-back matches in the fourth tier with victories over Grimsby Town and Port Vale which have helped lift Scunthorpe up into a more respectable looking 17th place.

Recent losses to Stevenage, Salford City and Barrow had threatened to plunge The Iron down into the relegation zone but the visitors will be boosted by their recent wins, but it should be noted that both of these wins were at home.

However, form and results away from home continue to be a major concern for Scunthorpe who have lost four of their last five matches away from home while picking up just the one win in a 2-1 victory at Walsall, but four of the last six meetings with Colchester have ended in stalemate.
