Colchester vs Cambridge Prediction

After sharing the spoils with Michael Duff's Cheltenham Town in their last game of the year, Colchester United will be looking to return to winning ways in League Two competition when they host Cambridge United at their Colchester Community Stadium. Steve Ball’s men recorded their last league win on December 8, 2020 when they defeated Scunthorpe thanks to Tommy Smith’s goal, and, no doubt, they are eager to give the fans at home something to cheer about.

Cambridge United, on the other hand, have been producing fine displays in League Two ever since they suffered a 1-0 loss to Alex Revell's Stevenage, with the team beating both Grimsby Town and Harrogate in their previous two league fixtures. Cambridge United are more of a team than Colchester United, and seeing that Steve Ball’s troops have been struggling in front of goal of late, the away side won't be settling for a point.

Colchester United have been quite ineffective in attack of late. Their ‘goals for’ figure stands at just four against opponents during the course of their previous six matches. In those games, the U's have also seen the tally of goals that have gone against them total seven goals. Going into this one, Colchester United haven't won against Cambridge United in their previous three head to head league games.

Since suffering a loss in their previous game against Oxford United in EFL Trophy competition, Cambridge United will be aiming to make amends here. Looking at their previous form, Mark Bonner's Cambridge United have been scored against in all six of their last six matches, letting opponents get six goals in all competitions, showing that defensively, the U's have seen their frailties exposed.

Looking at their last six head to head clashes dating back to September 2018 shows us that Colchester United have won two of these six games whilst Cambridge United have won four.

Colchester Team News

Colchester United are in discussions about bringing in a replacement for striker Luke Norris. The U's are actively looking to bolster their fire power, following the striker's departure to Stevenage on Tuesday.

Colchester boss Steve Ball says the club have 'targets' in place to boost their fire power, during this month's transfer window. And he revealed they are regularly in talks with players, agents and clubs about bringing in new signings, to the JobServe Community Stadium.

There are no fresh injury concerns for Steve Ball to be worried about ahead of this League Two match against Cambridge United.

Cambridge Team News

Hiram Boateng has extended his stay with Cambridge United until the end of the season. The U’s have agreed a new loan deal with MK Dons to secure the midfielder for the remainder of the current Sky Bet League Two season.

However, a shoulder injury in early December has since ruled Boateng out until late January/early February. He is the only injury concern for Mark Bonner's men ahead of this away tie against Colchester United.
