Northampton Town to win the game
Northampton have been solid in the early part of the campaign after back-to-back wins. Meanwhile, Colchester are yet to score in the two competitive matches. Even though Northampton have been unable to get a goal past Colchester in the last two meetings, they might rectify this poor run.
Total goals less than 2.5
Even though Northampton are far from spectacular, they have been quite steady and they are likely to profit from Colchester United being quite good in different areas of the pitch. After failing to have only major attempt at goal in the opening game against Carlisle, Colchester lost 1-0 to Birmingham City in the League Cup.
Clean sheet for Northampton Town
The opening match witnessed Northampton coming in with a steady display without too much spectacular elements. They are likely to have an easy day out given the performance of Colchester United in their opening match, as Hayden Mullins’ team were poor in different aspects of the pitch – mostly offence. Colchester created very little in the opening game and it does not provide confidence to expect goals from the home team.
Colchester vs Northampton: League Two Match Preview and Team News
The poor run of form shown by Colchester in the second half of last season appears to have not gone away, as the team has put in back-to-back poor performances to increase fears of relegation, which were very prominent towards the end of last season. There are no injury problems for Hayden Mullins coming into the game.
Northampton boss Jon Brady will be interested in adding more creativity to his squad given the opening two competitive matches of the season. After having dropped down to League Two after just one season in the third tier, Brady will be keen to get Northampton back up immediately. There are no injury problems for Northampton boss Brady ahead of this match.
