Crawley vs Colchester Best Predictions and Top Picks

Colchester win on Saturday put them in a favorable position for the remaining four games of the season, but for Crawley, the struggle will continue.

Under 2.5 Goals

We are going with a low-scoring match for the first Crawley vs Colchester prediction. Both teams are in the middle of a relegation battle, and every goal will count. They are facing an unfavorable resolution to the season, and with Colchester, it is a bit different as their win on Saturday put them six points clear from the relegation zone. Even though Crawley is one of the best ‘over' teams in the league, they had two games of under 2.5 goals in their last five outings, and looking at the h2h stats for these teams, the last two games went over the line, but three before those went the other way. Colchester has 28 ‘under' games this season and four out of the last five.

Draw

They split the spoils in their last match and the opinion for this Crawley vs Colchester match is that the same outcome should be the relevant result this time around as well. Both teams had plenty of draw matches this season with Crawley standing at eleven games while Colchester had one more and three out of the last five. The visiting team would be more than happy to take the point which would increase their points total nonetheless. For Crawley, it's about winning and we can expect their full focus on the attacking game plan.

The relegation battlers are in a huge fight for survival and there aren't points they can afford to lose. Crawley's form hasn't been sustainable and with their defense struggling to hold on, it is not a surprise that this team is in a tough situation. Locking down their goal is the team's prerogative, but also, there is the need for some balance at the forward position.

Possible lineup: Addai, Tsaroulla, Ransom, Conroy, Gordon, Oteh, Gladwin, Powell, Tilley, Telford, Nadesan.

Colchester

The guest team is in a tough position as well, although, at least for the time being they are outside the perimeters of the relegation zone. But, things in the bottom section of the standings are fluctuating constantly, so there is no time to be overconfident. Colchester has been playing a lot better than their opponent on this day, but they do have a lot of draw matches that brought them some valuable points.

Possible lineup: Smith, Chambers, Kelleher, Hall, Tchamadeu, Ashley, Read, Wood, Chilvers, Akinde, Tovide.

Starting Lineups

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

Player to Watch: Noah Chilvers
