Crawley vs Colchester
England – League 2
Date: Saturday, 12 October 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Broadfield Stadium (Crawley).
Colchester will try their best to make a foray into the playoff zone, considering their form, and the recent struggles of their opponent Crawley. The question remains though – will they be able to deal with the away handicap?

- The U’s won three of the former four clashes.

Crawley vs Colchester Prediction
The Reds lost the previous three matches in a row, and they conceded twice or more in all three. In addition, they are winless in the former six clashes on the trot and remained so in eight of the prior nine.
In front of the home crowd, the team is devoid of a win in the preceding four games and lost the last two. They had also let in two or more goals in three of the former four appearances in front of the home crowd.
On the other hand, the U’s are unbeaten in their last 13 straight match-ups, if their loss against topper, Forest Green is not considered. On the road, they have been defeated just twice this whole season, and this puts them on a stretch of 14 away trips with just two losses.
As these pointers suggest, count on the guests to avoid a loss at the least this weekend.
But taking into account the fact they do not have the comforts of home, along with the scoring streak of Crawley in spite of their struggles, the scope for BTTS is pretty high for this battle.
