Crewe Alexandra continue their push for a play-off spot in League Two this weekend as they face Colchester United.
Crewe Alexandra currently sit 7th in League Two with three wins, four draws and one loss from their first eight games of the season.
The Alex have started the season impressively and look determined to assert themselves as play-off candidates in this division after delivering such a mediocre campaign last time out.
They're coming into this game in good form having taken seven points from their last three matches, the most recent of which was a 2-2 draw away at AFC Wimbledon.
The point was a huge one for Crewe in tough circumstances having fallen 2-0 behind after 38 minutes.
However, a spirited second half showing saw Joel Tabiner reduce the deficit to just one goal in the 51st minute before a dramatic equaliser from Elliott Nevitt secured a point in the ten minute of stoppage-time.
Wimbledon were the better side on the whole in that game manager Lee Bell will be delighted with the never-say-die attitude on display from his side who have clearly demonstrated they have the backbone required to kick on in this division.
Their form at home has so far been good, with The Alex unbeaten in their four home games League Two this season.
A win here will see them on an impressive run of form and given their opposition this weekend it's a game they should take three points from.
Colchester United currently sit 18th in League Two with two wins, one draw and four losses from seven games so far this season.
It's been a very up and down season in terms of form for Colchester who, despite a worrying start, look as though they're now starting to find their feet.
They enter this game amidst a solid run of form in the league having won two, drawn one and lost one of their last four league matches.
Most recently, Colchester held 5th place Mansfield Town to a 1-1 draw at the JobServe Community Stadium.
Despite the point representing a good result, Colchester will be kicking themselves that it wasn't more after conceding a 90th minute equaliser having led the game for seventy minutes after Joe Taylor's strike in the 30th minute.
Regardless, it's still a good result for Colchester and it shows a marked improvement in the side after losing their first three games of the season.
Their record away from home has been slightly worrying having won one and lost three of their four league games on the road but that win did come at league leaders Gillingham so a result here is definitely not off the cards.
For our Crewe vs. Colchester prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.
