The final match of the season for both teams with one happy to avoid relegation and the other disappointing with a missed opportunity to get a chance at promotion.

Colchester to Win

With Mansfield losing two games in a row, there is little to no chance of them earning a playoffs promotion spot. For this Colchester vs Mansfield prediction, the home team featuring some young talented players will try to take advantage of the opportunity to get another win under their portfolio. It has been four years since the last time Colchester beat Mansfield, but now it seems to be the perfect time to take advantage of a depleted atmosphere inside the visiting team's locker room.

Both Teams to Score

It is quite stunning to notice that these teams have played nine straight matches with both sides scoring at least a goal.

Colchester vs Mansfield Lineups, Preview, and Team News

Colchester

With one of the youngest teams in the league this season, it was always going to be a struggle for Colchester to avoid relegation. But, they have done it and in the process gained a valuable experience for their squad who will have something to hold onto for next season when they will try to make a move in the positive direction.

Probable lineup: Smith, Chambers, Kelleher, Hall, Greenidge, Ashley, Read, Tchamadeu, Chilvers, Akinde, Tovide.

Mansfield

It was a huge letdown for Mansfield to lose the last two games which put them outside looking in toward the promotion playoffs. There are three teams inside those lines with 75 points, but Mansfield is three points down and with only a theory holding their hopes up for the final match of the season. The worst part of their losing those two games is that they played both at home.

Probable lineup: Pym, Perch, Kilgour, Harbottle, Johnson, Quinn, Reed, Boateng, Oates, Akins, Keillor-Dunn.

Player to Watch: Noah Chilvers

Colchester has one of the youngest teams in League Two this season at barely over 21 years of age, and one of the players that excelled this season within the squad is Noah Chilvers. He has been the highest scorer on the team with nine goals and also added an assist while making 39 appearances.

Starting lineups
