Colchester vs Newport Top Predictions and Best Odds

Colchester's form has been dismal in over a month and with another potentially bad game, they could find themselves in a relegation battle.

Under 2.5 Goals

It makes a lot of sense to choose a game with fewer than three goals scored for this Colchester vs Newport prediction. Both teams belong in the lower part of the rankings when it comes to that stat with the home team playing 25 under 2.5 goals matches in 38 appearances while Newport has one fewer game, but the same number of matches below the requested line. Their goal average per game is almost identical at just over two. Colchester had four games with fewer than three goals in the back of the net from their last five outings, and Newport similarly played three games. During the first part of the season, Newport won by a single goal.

Colchester to Win

We are taking into account the stakes for this Colchester vs Newport game. The hosts are in trouble when it comes to their form with seven straight games without a win, however, they need one right now because they are getting closer to the relegation zone. Newport, on the hand, is somewhat secure from that kind of drama. In the past five games they played against each other, Newport won three times while Colchester had a single victory with one game ending in a draw. Colchester's home record this season stands at only four wins which is one of the worst marks in the league while Newport's away form belongs in the top ten of the league standings.

Colchester vs Newport Lineups, Team News, and Preview

Colchester

The home team is still holding their place outside the relegation zone, but without a win for six games, they might complicate things for themselves. Not only that they are failing to gain traction winning-wise, but they are also in a bad shape when in front of the goal. There was some encouragement in their last two games, but this is a long way off from where they need to be as a team. Tom Dallison and Alan Judge are injured.

Probable lineup: O'Hara, Hall, Kelleher, Chambers, Kazeem, Chilvers, Ashley, Tchamadeu, Newby, Hopper, Tovide.

Newport

This will be the first match for Newport in two weeks, and the team is eager to get themselves going once again. They have accumulated six more points than their opponent and have a more comfortable position regarding their status being eleven points clear from the danger zone. After going without a win for five matches, they finally won their last match against Tranmere with a score of 3-1. Coach Graham Coughlan has no major injury issues.

Probable lineup: Day, Baker, Clarke, Demetriou, Norman, Wildig, Bennett, Charsley, Evans, Bogle, McNeill.

Starting Lineups

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.

Player to Watch: Omar Bogle

Newport's Omar Bogle has been the leader on the field with nine goals which makes him the club's best scorer this season. The 29-year-old Birmingham native has been playing consistently over 37 matches this term and has started almost every game.
