            Colchester vs. Tranmere Prediction, Tips & Stats

            Two sides very much in need of a win meet in League Two this weekend as Colchester United face Tranmere Rovers.

            Colchester United currently sit 22nd in the League Two table with one win and four losses from their first five games of the season.

            A 3-0 win over Gillingham was sandwiched in-between losses against Bradford City, 2-1, AFC Wimbledon, 0-2, MK Dons, 2-3, and most recently Walsall, 1-0.

            Most expected Colchester to struggle this season but the Gillingham win aside it's been an exceptionally poor performance form The U's in the opening weeks of the campaign.

            The win over Gillingham was an excellent one but following it up with another defeat against a struggling Walsall side almost puts them back at square one.

            Their form at home has been very poor with Colchester losing all three league games on home soil this season by a combined scoreline of 2-7.

            They need to start picking up some results or else they risk their confidence dropping so low it becomes difficult to claw themselves out of the mire.

            They must to give their own fans something to cheer about here as they face a side in a similarly sticky situation.

            Tranmere Rovers currently sit 21st in League Two with one win and five losses from their first six games of the season.

            Having played a game more than their opponents, Tranmere's start to the season has been even more concerning than Colchester's as they come into this game amidst a three-match losing streak in the league.

            Defeats against Salford City, 3-4, and Notts County, 2-1, preceded their most recent loss against Wrexham, 0-1.

            The loss against Wrexham was a deserved one and Tranmere never fully got going, and it now puts them in a very worrying position as it givens the impression they're primed for a deep relegation battle.

            Things got even worse in midweek when Tranmere faced Fleetwood Town in the EFL Trophy and fell to another defeat, this time by two goals to nil.

            It now means Tranmere are coming into this game having failed to score in any of their last three matches, a very concerning run of attacking impotence.

            Whether they can remedy this in good time remains to be seen, but right now they're looking very much like a relegation candidate and despite the season's nascence this one is already looking like an early relegation six pointer.

            For our Colchester vs. Tranmere prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.
