Colchester vs Rochdale
England – League Two
Date: Saturday, 24 September 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Colchester Community Stadium.

The league Two tie at Colchester Community Stadium on Saturday sees home side Colchester taking on opponents Rochdale.

Rochdale’s season has turned into chaos as they are placed at the bottom-most position in the league table. It is surprising to find that they are yet to win a single game this season.

The team led by Bentley is on a 9-fixture winless streak this season. They have only managed to win just two points this season, out of a possible 27.

The club supporters are very concerned with the team’s disastrous performance this season. If the trend continues, the chances of them relegating will be very high.

On the other hand, Colchester are also struggling to win this season. It is important to understand that more than 50% of their games ended in a stalemate this season. They have won only a single game in the League Two.

Going on, the team is on a 5-fixture winless streak at the moment. On top of that, Rochdale have an upper hand in the recent history of this head to head match-up.

By the looks of things, we expect an interesting affair between the two on Saturday.
