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.

Colchester vs Salford: Match Preview

Colchester Team News

Miles Welch-Hayes, Harry Beadle and Dean Gerken have all been rated as doubtful for this weekend's game, while Colchester coach Hayden Mullins is expected to be absent from the touchline following a positive COVID-19 test. The U's beat West Ham's juniors in the EFL Trophy in midweek, just days after securing a useful point at Swindon in the league.

Salford Team News

Defender Ibou Touray is still suspended following his red card at Tranmere while forward Conor McAleny faces a battle to be fit for the weekend. Salford snatched a point at the death at home to Northampton in their last game, though City's results on the road remain dismal. The Ammies have lost three out of three away contests in the division so far.
