Tip Reasoning

  • Exeter sit just four points from the peak of the table and can provisionally close the gap with a win.
  • Colchester lost three of their last five games without reply.
  • Exeter scored 2+ goals in three of the last four home H2H meetings.

A ‘Good’ opportunity for Eggxeter

Never mind the plethora of dodgy Easter puns you will see across the weekend, this game pits promotion-chasing Exeter against a lowly Colchester side, who despite their 20th position in the table, are relatively safe from the drop.

Exeter boss Matt Taylor has fond memories of this fixture, he is unbeaten in seven of his nine personal meetings with Colchester (W4, D3) and he will be looking to strengthen that further as their relentless pursuit of Forest Green continues.

Losing just twice at home all season (W11, D6, L2), Exeter have been imperious in spite of a questionable return of just one clean sheet across their last five matches here, suggesting that they will be right up for hitting a couple of goals yet again.

Colchester’s season is fading into obscurity

Sitting relatively pretty eight points above the drop zone, Colchester could take a huge step towards mathematical safety if they could spring an upset.

However, with just five games remaining and three woeful teams chasing in behind, it is unlikely that they will actually need to win those games to achieve mathematical safety.

All in all, we predict a rather straightforward victory for Exeter in this matchup, with a potential 2-0 scoreline keeping the pressure on Forest Green at the top of the table.
