Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After holding Mansfield Town to a 1-1 draw, Southend United will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they face Colchester United on Matchday 20. The Seasiders have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team looking to extend their unbeaten run in League Two to five games. Talented defender Tom Clifford, who suffered an injury in the 1-1 draw with Mansfield, is unlikely to feature against Colchester.
The U’s, on the other hand, aim to regain their spot in top seven, and we are positive that they will go for a win in Saturday’s clash. Colchester failed to impress in back-to-back losses to Cambridge United and Morecambe, but they are surely capable of grabbing something from the match against the rock-bottom side. A close encounter is on the cards at Roots Hall, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw.
