Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Colchester United and Leyton Orient go head to head at Colchester Community Stadium in what is expected to be a very exciting game. The U’s have been impressive at home ground in the League One of late, with the team recording a win in each of their previous three home fixtures, but they head into Saturday’s clash following a shocking loss to Marine in the FA Cup.
Leyton Orient, on the other hand, suffered a 2-1 loss to Newport in the FA Cup, meaning that they will be fully focused on the League Two in the remainder of the season. The Lilywhites suffered a 2-1 loss to Forest Green in their last league match, and given Colchester’s brilliant home record, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. The U’s head coach Steve Ball rested several first-team regulars in the loss to Marine, but he is likely to field the best possible side against Leyton.
