Struggling Colchester in need of wins

It’s worrying times down in Essex as Colchester United sit just three points off of the relegation zone and it would be a disaster for them if they were to drop out of the football league. They now welcome fellow bottom-half side Rochdale to Colchester Community Stadium looking to snap a run of three straight defeats. Their issue is predominantly in the final third as only two sides in the division have scored fewer goals than them this season, something that needs improving if they want to assure themselves of safety.

The visitors are eight points clear of relegation but will know they could be further up the table. They’ve drawn nine of their 22 games this season which is commendable when it’s clear they’re hard to beat, but they need to turn some of those into wins. They’re as close to the playoffs as they are to relegation and it echoes their form across the season and a win here could serve as a perfect platform to kick on.

Goals at both ends likely once again

This fixture usually sees plenty of goals and we think both teams will find the back of the net for the sixth time in six meetings between the two. We also think that Rochdale will edge this one.
