Our prediction for this League 2 match:
There will be fireworks when Colchester United and Bolton Wanderers face each other at Colchester Community Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The U’s played out a goalless draw with Bradford at Valley Parade in their opener, but seeing that the Bantams are a real force to be reckoned with at home, this outcome is anything but unsatisfying. The Trotters, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to Forest Green.
Bolton are on a quest to secure a quick return to the League One, but they need to start a winning run as soon as possible if they are to meet the goal. Anyhow, beating Colchester on the road is easier said than done, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. This will be their first meeting in a competitive match since May, 1988 when Bolton crushed Colchester 4-0 in the League Division Four.
