Colchester vs Northampton Match Analysis, Preview, and Team News

Colchester

Colchester dropped down to 19th place in the table after the recent loss against Carlisle. Even though the team has been able to put together a buffer over the relegation zone in the last few weeks, they have played a couple of games more than teams around them. The Colchester vs Northampton line ups may only see the absence of Luka Chambers, who is a doubt for the game.

They will look to put their defeat to Carlisle behind them but it will not be an easy task against Northampton. Home court advantage is in their favour and they should look to make the most of it. With their rivals winless in their last four League Two outings and their personal trajectory on the rise, this is the perfect time to take on their challenge. However, they will be wary off the visitors, who are on a three-match winning streak against them.

Northampton

Northampton are getting some key players back into the lineup from suspension and injuries. This should provide manager Jon Brady with some relief, as he tries to get his team back up into the top three places. Aaron McGowan and Akinwale Odimayo are potential doubts because of injuries.

The 1-2 defeat to Grimsby should be the final wakeup call for Northampton. They have not dropped 9 out of the possible 12 points in their last four league outings. It has seen them slip to fifth place, outside the automatic promotion slots. There is still hope for them but they need to address their shortfalls now or risk getting dismantled. While their defence has held its own with just three goals conceded in their last five outings, the attacking unit’s outlay of just four goals scored has let them down.
