Mansfield to win the game
Mansfield have played some excellent football in this early part of the campaign. The back-to-back wins have put the team in a very strong position, while Colchester look completely out of shape. The number of missed opportunities for Colchester in the recent loss against Northampton Town will especially make them feel quite bad. Even the overall head-to-head meetings between Colchester and Mansfield have been very close, this game should go in favour of the visitors who are aiming for a third consecutive league win.
Total goals over 2.5
The defensive performances from Mansfield have been excellent in recent matches. Even if Colchester, who are yet to score in the campaign, managed to get off the mark, the biggest contribution is likely to come from Mansfield, who have four goals in the last two league matches. Crucially, all of the games involving Mansfield have produced over 2.5 goals this season and it is the same case with recent head-to-head meetings between Colchester and Mansfield.
Colchester total goals – under 1.5
Hayden Mullins has watched his team come up with some attacking performances. Even after having many chances against Northampton, Colchester were unable to put them away. The offence is going through a low-confidence period and it is best to expect a lower return of goals.
