Gillingham vs Colchester United: Top Free Betting Tips

After the successive home victories, Colchester United focus on finding their winning ways of away outings back when they travel to Gillingham in EFL Trophy. The Gills are on an undefeated sequence in various competitions before this game.

Gillingham to Win

Gillingham has been involved in most of the winless games recently but they have now registered two victories in the last three outings. The team has also won three of the last five home games, losing only once. However, Colchester United are struggling in the away outings as they are without a win in the previous four away duels, losing three of them. In the H2Hs, the Gills have also dominated Colchester and won four of the recent five meetings. So Gillingham will be our favourite to add three points from this game.

Under 2.5 Goals

The majority of the recent H2Hs between these sides have ended with low-scoring outcomes and we expect the same trend to be followed. Gillingham has found the back of the net five times in the last three outings, ending their poor scoring form. But Colchester United are still lagging in this respect and they hit the target only three times in the previous five away outings.

Both Teams to Score: No

Gillingham has been consistent in their scoring end from the previous three games but Colchester didn’t score more than once in any of the last five away outings. The U’s have also failed to score in two of the last four visits. On the contrary, the Gills have also been successful to claim three clean sheets in three of the last five home games. Gillingham were also impressive in the H2Hs against Colchester with four clean sheets in five meetings. So we expect only the Gills to be able to get on the score sheet in this game.

Colchester United
