Phil Parkinson’s Wrexham face a struggling Colchester side this weekend, where they will look to apply pressure on Stockport, who are in first. The visitors are also in desperate need of a victory.
The Red Dragons have only won one of their last three League Two matches, which has prevented them from catching Stockport in first place. After 20 matches, Wrexham have won 10, picking up 37 points. Their dominance is due to them scoring the most goals per game on average, 2.1.
Defending is an aspect the boss will want to improve, with his side conceding 1.55 per game on average. We saw this weakness last time out, as Wrexham let a two nil lead slip away at Harrogate Town. The tie ended 2-2.
Colchester have been poor recently, losing all of their last four League Two matches. The main reason for this is due to their shaky defence, which has conceded the most goals in the league, 42. The Oysters have also only scored 29 goals in 21 matches. This has ultimately put the side in 22nd place on 20 points.
Last time out, Colchester hosted Crawley and suffered a 2-1 defeat. The visitors dominated the tie and deservedly picked up three points.
Wrexham are extremely strong at home, winning 70% of their matches and scoring an average of over three per game. On the other hand, Colchester have won three of their ten away matches. The hosts should win this game comfortably.
The final prediction is Wrexham 3-1 Colchester.
