Essential Stevenage vs Colchester Predictions for League Two

Winless Colchester United will travel to face Stevenage on the 7th of April at Broadhall Way. If you wish to get the best possible intel on this clash, follow the next Stevenage vs Colchester United betting tips.

Stevenage/Stevenage

Our key Stevenage vs Colchester United prediction is heavily in favor of coach Steve Evans’ boys. The 60-year-old manager himself has a somewhat disappointing 2-4-3 record against Colchester United but we’re confident that his team’s momentum will be the difference-maker on Friday.

Furthermore, Stevenage have a big head-to-head advantage over this opponent. The last 10 games between the two sides finished with five Stevenage wins, three draws, and only two Colchester United wins.

Seeing as coach Ben Garner’s boys didn’t record a single victory in the past month, Stevenage should be very unhappy if they don’t manage to get easy three points on the 7th of April.

Under 0.5 Colchester Goals

Is it really a surprise that we believe the visitors will go home empty-handed on Friday? Our second Stevenage vs Colchester United prediction is a follow-up to our first.

Colchester United have the 2nd-worst goalscoring record in League Two this season with barely 34 goals scored in 39 official league games.

The only team to score less is Gillingham – 27 goals in 39 games. However, Colchester United’s form is atrocious and it’d be a surprise to see them find the net against an in-form Stevenage who barely conceded two goals in their past four games.

Stevenage odds: 3/5 (1.60) – 61.0%

Draw odds: 14/5 (3.80) – 25.0%

Colchester odds: 9/2 (5.50) – 14.0%

Dark clouds are following Colchester United wherever they go and at 9/2 (5.50), they barely have a 14.0% win probability for Friday’s game. Stevenage should get the three points as they are the expected winners with a whopping 61.0% likelihood of winning at 3/5 (1.60) and a victory for coach Steve Evans is long overdue as his boys failed to do so in the previous three matches

Stevenage vs Colchester Lineups & Team News

Stevenage

Lined up in a 5-3-2 formation on the 1st of April, coach Steve Evans’ strategy was definitely no joke. The 60-year-old manager is an old fox and he was very aware of what will happen if he decides to outplay Northampton Town. The latter are Leyton Orient’s key rivals for 1st place yet Stevenage chipped a point away from them in the title race.

Predicted lineup – McCracken (GK), Clark, Sweeney, Vancooten, Piergianni, Wildin, Reeves, Gilbey, Campbell, Roberts & Norris

Colchester

The U’s are having a gruesome 2022/23 campaign. Coach Ben Graner’s boys are on the verge of relegation as they barely accumulated 38 points in 39 League Two games. That’s not the sort of performance the fans were dreaming of at the beginning of the season but the players have enough time to change their faith.

Predicted lineup – O’Hara (GK), Chambers, Kelleher, Hall, Tchamadeu, Chilvers, Read, Wood, Jay, Hopper & Tovide

Starting Lineups

*Starting lineups are usually announced 1hr before the kick-off

Player to Watch: Luke Norris

As you previously saw in the lineup section of our Stevenage vs Colchester United prediction, Luke Norris is expected to be among coach Steve Evans’ starters on Friday. Norris is playing with a fire inside of him and since the start of the season, he managed to bag 10 goals which makes him Stevenage’s top finisher in the 2022/23 race. He’ll surely be a joy to behold on the 7th of April as well.
