Tip Reasoning

  • Crawley won three of the last four H2Hs at this venue.
  • Crawley are unbeaten in four of their last five league games.
  • Colchester failed to score a goal in each of their last six away league games.
  • Crawley boss John Yems is unbeaten in personal H2Hs with Colchester (W2, D2).

Crawley to solidify their EFL status

Neither of these sides have been pulling up trees this season and that is evidenced by their respective lowly positions. However, Crawley have picked up more points across the last five rounds than they did in the seven prior, suggesting they are on something of an upwards curve.

All four of Crawley boss John Yems’ personal clashes with Colchester have been nip-and-tuck affairs with under 2.5 total goals (W2, D2), while both victories came by a mere 1-0 scoreline. However, all of their home wins this season ended 2-1, suggesting this could be a more open affair.

Toothless Colchester can’t catch a break

The visitors have now played out 550 minutes of away league football without scoring a goal, a run which does their confidence no favours. Colchester sat just three points above the drop zone ahead of the round and they could be sucked into the dog fight if they fail to score again.

All in all, I predict that Crawley will just about edge out a scrappy affair between two sides who are seriously threatened by relegation from the EFL. The visitors recently scored away from home against play-off chasing Swindon in the cup so they can at least hope to end their scoreless streak in this clash.
