Colchester to Win
Colchester managed to collect four points from their last two games at home, kicking off their mini-surge with a fine 1-0 win over high-flying Harrogate at the JobServe Community Stadium. With form on their own patch strong, the U’s are our tip to beat a rock-bottom Scunthorpe outfit that have taken just four points from the 21 on offer on the road since the summer.
Under 2.5 Goals
A deluge of goals and penalty area drama is unlikely this weekend however when Colchester take on bottom side Scunthorpe. The hosts have notched just three times in six home assignments this term, while 100% of the same games produced under 2.5 goals. The Iron meanwhile, have registered just five efforts in seven away tussles this season and with firepower lacking in both arsenals, we recommend sticking to the under 2.5 line on Saturday.
Half With Most Goals – Second
A secondary market for Saturday’s game holds plenty of appeal in our third forecast, where our prediction tips the second half to see more goals than the first at the JobServe Community Stadium. Remarkably, all three of Colchester’s goals at home this term were scored in the 88th minute or later, and their knack for leaving it late is a pattern worth backing this weekend.
