Tip Reasoning

With Blackpool’s run in the FA Cup at an end, we are backing them to suffer further disappointment when they host Colchester at the weekend. Given that Colchester suffered their own disappointment last time out, we think that it would be wise to add some security and back them on the double chance option at 3/4 with bet365. For our correct score tip we think it will be a hard fought game but the U’s should come out on top, so we are backing a 2-1 away win at 11/1 with the same site.

It was a tough week for those in charge at Blackpool last weekend as the side crashed out of the FA Cup, but they also made the news as part of a joint fans protest with Blackburn against the boards of both clubs and the FA. Things haven’t been any easier in the league either, as Blackpool are now without a win in their previous four league games. Even though they have games in hand on most of their rivals, they still look unlikely to be able to mount a challenge for the play-off places. The Tangerines have relied mostly on a solid back four and they boast the joint defensive record in the league.

Colchester are still one of the most in form sides in League Two at the moment and a return of 17 points from their past eight league games has seen them catapulted from a side struggling towards the foot of the table to one which is well within the play-off hunt. The heavy 3-0 defeat to Cambridge last time out will have dealt the U’s a significant blow, so it will be interesting to see if the side have the character to bounce back with a positive result on Saturday.
