Crawley vs Colchester – Predictions & Top Free Betting Tips

Crawley produced a spirited performance to get a 2-1 win over Leyton Orient away from home. Colchester United endured more disappointment following a 3-0 thumping at the hands of Walsall in their last match several weeks ago.

Crawley victory

Crawley Town have picked up back-to-back wins over Colchester United. Both teams have had plenty of weeks to prepare for this game, but it is very unlikely that the rest will have helped Colchester show any improvement. The visitors have only managed to away victories throughout the league campaign and they are winless in the last six league matches on the road. After back-to-back wins over Colchester, the home team have a psychological edge over their opponents.

Total goals under 2.5

The last four meetings between Crawley and Colchester has produced less than 2.5 goals. In fact, the last two meetings have ended up producing less than 1.5 goals. Colchester are without a goal in the last two outings and there is likely to be a shortage of goals from the visitors. Crawley have scored in four consecutive home matches and they also have momentum on their side to get goals, but it may not be sufficient for a high-scoring game.

BTTS – no

Crawley Town have not kept a clean sheet for more than a month after last managing the same back in November against Barrow. A run of four consecutive games with at least a goal conceded mean that Crawley have had to work hard for points. Colchester are without a goal in four out of the last five away matches. Just in League Two, Colchester have not scored in an away game since the middle of September.

Crawley vs Colchester: Crawley aim for more joy against Colchester


Crawley were able to finish 2021 in a positive fashion after the win over Leyton Orient. It has put the team in a decent position with regards to being able to fight against relegation. However, the team still has a long way to go before being able to come close to their lofty positions in the early few weeks of the season. Manager John Yems has a fully fit squad available for this game.


Amidst a mounting injury crisis, manager Hayden Mullins has to find a way to motivate his players after a string of disappointing games. The team has had several weeks to grow over the heavy loss against Walsall. Colchester will be without Frank Nouble, Gene Kennedy, Ryan Clampin, Miles Welch-Hayes, Shamal George, and Noah Chilvers due to injuries.
