Tip Reasoning

  • Colchester have failed to score in 12 of their last 15 away league contests.
  • Barrow have failed to score in two of their last five home league games.

Blank night in prospect for U’s against Bluebirds  

Colchester United fans will be making the long trip up to Barrow for a Friday night fixture in League Two knowing there’s a very good chance they won’t see their side score.

The U’s have managed just five goals in their last 16 away days and went on a run of ten road trips without a League Two goal last season.

Recent results have picked up with Hayden Mullins’ side earning a 1-1 draw at Rochdale after getting their first away win in months against struggling Oldham in August, but it’s far from manager of the month material.

Mullins has been trying to shoehorn two strikers into a 4-2-3-1 formation which pushes Freddie Sears into wide areas.

And although that hasn’t yielded many away points in 2021, they do appear defensively sound.

They have experienced centre-backs and a solid look about their midfield so we could see them record a sixth away clean sheet in their last ten at Holker Street.

Barrow are frequent home scorers with four goals registered in the three league games they have hosted this term, but they did draw a blank against Exeter last month.

We’re not expecting this fixture to produce many goals and believe it’s worth backing at least one of the teams to draw a blank in the both teams to score betting.

Barrow’s better forward line might just have enough to break the deadlock, however, as our correct score prediction of 1-0 to the hosts demonstrates.
