Colchester or Draw
Just a single point separates Colchester and Salford in the League Two standings, and though the teams could be difficult to separate at the JobServe Community Stadium, we recommend siding with the hosts in the double chance market. Colchester have tasted defeat just once in their last six games in the division, while an underperforming Salford outfit have lost 100% o their matches on the road so far.
Under 2.5 Goals
We expect chances and goal-scoring opportunities to be thin on the ground when Colchester and Salford face off this weekend. Each of the U’s three home assignments in League Two this term produced under 2.5 goals, while Salford have notched just twice in three fixtures on the road since the summer. With both clubs struggling for fluency in the final third, stick to the under 2.5 goals line on Saturday.
Half Time Result: Draw
Colchester have yet to establish a first-half lead at home this term after three attempts in League Two, while Salford haven’t managed to secure a first-half advantage on the road since the new campaign kicked off. The clubs’ respective records suggest that an opportunity could be on offer by backing a draw in the half-time result market this weekend and we recommend doing just that at the prices on offer.
