Mansfield Town vs Colchester United betting tips: League Two preview, prediction and odds

Match preview

Two sides aiming to get back on track in League Two meet this weekend when league action returns as Mansfield Town just outside of the playoffs clash with relegation-sitting Colchester United.

Colchester were at the foot of the table not too long ago. However, a slightly improved stretch of form has seen them move ahead of Gillingham and Hartlepool United in League Two. The U’s defeated Doncaster Rovers in their last League Two outing with an excellent 3-0 win. It was their highest-scoring victory of the League Two campaign as goals from Luke Hannant, Samson Tovide and Alex Newby secured all three points.

On the other hand, Colchester lost 2-1 to Bristol Rovers in the EFL Trophy after a 2-0 defeat to Newport County in the FA Cup, which now means there is no more cup action from them this season. Colchester are also sitting with just 17 efforts netted of their own in League Two, and only Harrogate Town, Crawley Town and Hartlepool United have let in more than their 26 goals conceded.

Mansfield are looking to get back into the playoff spots right now and have a bit of work to close the gap on those above them. The club are just one point adrift of Swindon Town in seventh and sit only two behind sixth-placed Carlisle United. However, they have managed to win one more game than these two clubs.
