Tip Reasoning

  • Colchester have scored just 17 goals in 22 League Two games, the lowest in the fourth-tier.
  • The hosts have scored once in their last four league games, and have lost four on the spin in all competitions.
  • Barrow have only managed 9 goals in their 11 away league games this term.

Goals unlikely in basement clash

Colchester United are the worst attacking outfit in League Two, scoring just 17 goals all season. They’ve only found the net once in their last four league games, and have lost their last four matches in all competitions, going six without a win.

Barrow have also, in the main, been low-scoring this season. They’ve only scored 9 goals in 11 away league games this season, but found the net four times in a spectacular 5-4 FA Cup loss at Barnsley, playing over 80 minutes with ten men.

With Colchester and Barrow sitting just three and four points, respectively, above the fourth-tier’s drop zone, a cagey affair looks likely at the Colchester Community Stadium.

Back under 2.5 goals when low-scoring sides meet

Colchester have not netted multiple goals in a game since mid-November, and have only scored more than one goal on two occasions in their last 16 league outings. Barrow, meanwhile, had been shutout in seven of their last ten games before that mad game at Oakwell, and have only scored three league goals since the end of October.

Under 2.5 match goals, then, looks a strong play for this clash. Despite Colchester’s dreadful recent form, Barrow may still be feeling the effects of playing for so long with a numerical disadvantage against Championship opponents, making a cagey 1-1 draw a decent correct score prediction.
