Colchester – Tranmere Preview: Latest Form, News, and Potential Lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Colchester vs Tranmere lineups.

Colchester

Colchester have made an awful start to the season and they lost 5 of their opening 6 matches. Last weekend the display was not too bad on the visit to Walsall but still a 0-1 defeat was suffered. 

Only 2 of the 6 league games so far had been at home so this should be factored in. That said Colchester lost both of their home games so far. 

The main goalie Hornby continues to nurse a finger injury. He’s yet to play this season and teenager Goodman is not a very good cover. The team’s Portuguese playmaker Mauro remains the main hope up front. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Goodman (GK), Dallison-Lisbon, Hall, Kelleher, Lawrence, Chilvers, Fevrier, Mauro, Tovide, Read & Taylor 

Tranmere

Tranmere made it 5 defeats in a row on Tuesday when they lost 0-2 away vs higher-league Fleetwood in an EFL Trophy match. This was also the third game in a row in which Rovers failed to score. 

Tranmere lost 5 of their 6 league games so far too. On the road, they lost 3 consecutive matches. 

The left flank is weakened right now. Norris (left-back) and Apter (left winger) continue to nurse minor injuries and both are deemed doubtful. 

Predicted Lineup: 

McGee (GK), Turnbull, Leake, Davies, O’Connor, Morris, Hawkes, Hendry, Lewis, Dennis & Jennings 

​Starting Lineups

The teams usually announce their starting lineups one hour before the start of the game.

​Player to Watch: Joseph Taylor

Colchester’s new striker Joseph Taylor has started his first season at the club very well. Taylor is the team’s top goalscorer with 3 goals in 5 league appearances. The 20-year-old has scored both league goals at home so far too. 

Taylor also scored in the League Cup recently so he’s clearly in very good form and one to watch out for making an impact.
