Both teams to score

Colchester comes into this fixture an improved side given their current position on the table. They sit 22nd with only five points from the drop. To them, this is a must-win fixture. However, we are backing both teams to score because the first fixture of the season between the two sides was a high scoring match that ended 3-3. With need for goals to survive, away goal is very likely. The hosts have conceded at least a goal their last four fixtures and playing against a team they conceded three goals to earlier in the season could further expose their defensive misdemeanors.

Colchester or Draw

Another prediction is backing the away team to win or draw. Only 7 points separates the relegation-threatened Colchester United from their Friday hosts. A win on the road could narrow that gap to four points. Oldham looks quite okay in their current position, albeit, they need points to further stem their stay in League Two. The two teams have both played 40 games with the hosts conceding 66 within that duration. The visitors have conceded 54 goals so far and boast of a good recorded against Oldham Athletic. Five draws in the last seven fixtures shows how much Colchester are fighting to survive and they may very well pull  a surprise at Boundary Park in Oldham, England.

Total Goals: Under 2.5

While three of the last four games for the hosts have ended with more than two goals, this fixture could be different. And despite their woes, Colchester United has remained strong defensively since their successive barren draws against Grimsby Town and Salford City in mid-match. They registered another barren draw at the start of April before 1-1 draw against barrow. Coming into this fixture, Colchester hopes to keep their defense intact to secure the much-need points against Oldham that has conceded goals in their last four fixtures. Fewer than 2.5 goals look valuable in this matchup.

Match Preview: Will Colchester United survive the drop?

Colchester United will continue their quest for survival. A win or draw will boost their chances. Find out more in our match preview below.

Oldham Athletic

Oldham comes into this fixture with two wins, two losses and two draws in their last six fixtures. They defeated Crawley Town on the road a few days ago. However, the hosts have not recorded back to back victories since November 2020. Since 2010, Oldham Athletic has never recorded a home victory against Colchester, which makes this fixture even more unique. Will they make history in this fixture, especially against a team that has improved defensively and fighting to survive the drop?

Colchester United

With no away loss against Oldham Athletic since 2010; we may be looking at a repeat of history. Colchester needs to win this because their survival chances are slim. A barren draw against 4th placed Bolton Wanderers at the start of April remains a motivating factor in this fixture. They have not conceded a goal in their last three away fixtures, which further gives them hope coming into this match.
