Tip Reasoning

  • Mansfield have picked up a joint league-high 33 home points this season.
  • Mansfield won nine of their last 11 games, only falling to Championship Middlesbrough.
  • Colchester failed to win ten of their last 12 matches.

Planning a Wembley Stag party

A goalless stalemate with Harrogate last time out means that Mansfield are at risk of dropping out of the play-off places if they fail here, though they will at least be happy of their home comforts after picking up a sizeable 73% of their points haul up at home.

Mansfield have now won each of their last eight home league games, which is quite comfortably the longest current winning run of home league games in the division.

During that time, half of the victories came without reply while seven saw them score at least twice, suggesting they have what it takes to maintain their play-off push with yet another success against a struggling Colchester.

Colchester out to spoil the celebrations

An optimistic Colchester fan may point to the fact that they are in a minority of sides to pick up the majority of their points haul away from home (53%), though that point haul stands at a meagre 30, meaning that they are still looking over their shoulder to the drop-zone.

Even though Colchester actually boast a stronger away record than their hosts, Mansfield’s home form is simply irresistible and as such, I predict a rather comfortable home victory in this clash at a decent value price.

As for the correct score prediction, Mansfield could end a six-game winless run of home H2Hs with a workmanlike 2-0 victory against this complacent Colchester outfit.
