            Colchester vs Northampton Prediction, Tips & Stats

            Colchester United and Northampton Town are set to meet in League Two this weekend as the U's head into this game without a manager after the loss of Matt Bloomfield to Wycombe Wanderers.

            Colchester have been in topsy-turvy form since Bloomfield took over in September, as he guided the club to just eight wins from 28 outings. It totalled a win ratio of just 31.1% although the excellent form of the club in January saw Bloomfield claim the Manager of the Month award.

            What's more, Colchester are now up into 19th and way clear of the bottom four after previously sitting bottom of the table. In fact, they are now above the bottom four by five points, although they have played the most games in the division this season with 33.

            Last time out in Bloomfield's last game as boss, the club were defeated by Carlisle United 1-0. At the same time, they have still managed to secure two wins n the past three weeks, as Bloomfield guided his side to a 2-1 win over Hartlepool United and a 1-0 win over Grimsby Town away from home.

            As for Northampton, they are winless in February with them drawing against Walsall, Rochdale and Wimbledon before a loss to Grimsby last weekend at home. It's seen Jon Brady's men drop into fifth from third, although they do still have a game in hand over Carlisle United and Stockport County just above them, and they do trail County by just two points.

            Northampton team news

            Northampton's poor run of form could bring some changes to the side for this one. Appere was taken off in the 2-1 loss to Grimsby and he may now drop out for Shaun Mcwilliams. Sam Hoskins has still been in goalscoring form in this run, and he should start here once more after netting the opening goal against Grimsby Town. Linotto, Koiki, Leonard and Pinnock are all likely to play in the midfield, but Aaron McGowan is now back and Will Hondermarck could get more minutes off the bench. We also expect to see Josh Eppiah play here with Tete Yengi.

            Appiah will start again up top here, but Tovide could drop out for Alex Newby. Matt Jay has been in goalscoring form this season but he was dropped last weekend. He should now start, and Tom Hopper likely comes into the side as well after missing the last game. John Akinde may come into the side as well, as Ashley is set to miss out through injury. Hall, Smith and Kelleher should carry on in a back three. Noah Chilvers has moved into a number 10 role recently and he should carry on here.
