Salford vs Colchester Prediction, Tips & Stats

Colchester travel to Salford this Friday, where they will look to overtake their opponent in the League Two table. Luckily for the U's, they’re unbeaten against the Ammies in four games, including the reverse fixture, which ended 2-1.

Salford

Salford’s season has been frustrating for all involved, particularly the supporting fans, who have only seen their side win two of their 13 home games. The Ammies sit in 21st place after 27 matches, and they’ve not really excelled at either end of the field, scoring just 1.3 times per match and conceding 1.78 per game.

After suffering four straight defeats, Salford have picked up four points from their last two games, with their most recent being a 1-0 away victory over Crawley. The visitors absolutely dominated the tie, registering a huge 35 attempts, and deservedly picked up the first three points under new boss Karl Robinson.

Colchester

Colchester are in a very similar situation to Salford, however, they’re two points behind this week’s hosts after having played one more game. The U’s are 22nd in League Two, and they have lost ten of their 14 away ties. The side has netted 1.36 goals per game on average while conceding 1.96, the second highest average in the league.

Their defence has been shaky, with the side not keeping a clean sheet since October. Funnily enough, their only win in their last 12 matches was against Salford. However, Colchester could go three unbeaten this weekend, as they drew 1-1 against Bradford last time out.

Verdict?

This game will be decided by the fine margins, and Salford are expected to dominate based on last week’s showing.

The new boss will want to get a win under his belt in front of the home fans, and Salford could just steal it this weekend.

The final prediction is Salford 2-0 Colchester.

Salford Team News

The same team that won last time out will start again in a 4-3-3. This means Matt Smith, Elliot Watt, and Curtis Tilt will all feature.

Colchester Team News

Colchester also picked up no new fresh injuries last time out, so they should also be unchanged. Tom Hopper will look to score in consecutive games.
