Bradford and Colchester will meet in a huge game down in League Two this weekend with the home side looking to stomp their marker down on the playoff spots just as Colchester bid to get further away from the drop zone once more.
It's been an excellent 2023 for Colchester, as they now come into this game with a gap of nine points on Crawley Town in 23rd. On the other hand, the relegation-sitting side do have three games in hand to play over them, and that could suck Colchester right back into the mixture. However, it's not expected that we see Crawley go on such a fantastic run of winning form.
At the same time, the form of those below the U's is much weaker than them, as they have managed to win nine games so far and draw eight. The club have, however, not won in the past three games, with Walsall registering a 0-0 draw before a 1-0 loss to Carlisle United and Northampton Town.
As for Bradford, they're on a two-game winning run after defeating Doncaster Rovers 1-0 and Gillingham 2-0 in the league. It now sees Mark Hughes' men move up to sixth.
