Colchester vs Salford – Best Betting Tips, Predictions, & Odds

Colchester lost 2-0 to relegation rivals Gillingham in a home match as the three-game winning sequence for the team came to a shock end. Salford continued their impressive results at home with a 2-0 success over Sutton United.

Win for Salford

There have been a string of victories for Colchester in recent weeks before the latest loss against Gillingham. Salford might have managed three wins in the last five matches but they tend to pick up most of their wins at home. However, the upcoming meeting would be a case where Salford make the most of Colchester’s low confidence levels coming into the game. The defeat against Gillingham is likely to send Colchester into a very poor spell.

Total goals over 2.5

This prediction has just witnessed Colchester failing to score after five consecutive matches of getting at least a goal. The failure to score against Gillingham, though, is unlikely to extend for long. This prediction has frequently witnessed Salford being quite poor at the back. A first clean sheet in six matches does not give a great deal of confidence to expect a blank in the upcoming game.

Both teams to score – yes

There have been goals at both ends of the pitch in four out of the recent five league encounters for Salford. Even though the team were quite solid against Sutton, they are likely to struggle in an away match.
