Colchester vs Bradford Prediction & Match Preview

Colchester vs Bradford
England – League 2
Date: Tuesday, 21 January 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue:  Colchester Community Stadium (Colchester).

The dearth of home advantage has certainly been a pressing problem for Bradford this term. Miserably, the visitors are without a win in their last six trips on the road.

And now, with Colchester unbeaten in their past six games here, the guests are left with no reason to have their hopes up on Tuesday.

Colchester vs Bradford Head to head (h2h)

  • Their last clash witnessed Colchester post a 2-1 victory.
  • Four of their previous five games have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts.
  • Both teams have found the back of the net together in six of their past ten fixtures.
  • Two of their last ten encounters have finished as a stalemate.
  • Bradford have registered the win just once in their previous eleven fixtures. (W-1, D-6, L-4)

Colchester vs Bradford Prediction

Colchester extended their unbeaten streak in the fourth division to thirteen games on the trot by taking down Macclesfield at home with a 2-1 scoreline. The hosts were just too hot to handle in that latter matchup, forcing their counterparts to settle for no more than a consolation goal.

It is also worth mentioning that the home team are now just one-point shy of a playoff spot on the table.

On the other hand, Bradford have been hit by a sharp decline in form. Disappointingly, the guests have failed to pick up a win in each of their last three fixtures. Their most recent clash, in particular, saw the visiting contingent share the spoils with Scunthorpe in a four-goal thriller.

Piling on even more misery, it has now been over two months since Bradford last tasted success on the road in League Two. In sharp contrast, Colchester have come out on top in four of their past six games here.

Taking into account that Bradford have not secured the bragging rights in any of their previous two visits to this stadium either, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of the hosts this week.

However, the visitors have been resilient in their outings so far. Impressively, they have salvaged a point in five of their last eight trips on the road. Hence, the safest punt in this one would have to be a Draw no bet.

Furthermore, goals have been hard to come in their recent h2h fixtures here. All of their previous three meetings have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the final scorecards.

Meanwhile, the hosts have kept a clean sheet in two of their last five games at home. Considering that Bradford have scored just three goals in their past five outings, count on neither side to rack up the goals tally in this one.
