COLCHESTER UNITED - LEICESTER CITY
United sacked their coach last week and the caretaker boss started well, with a 4-3 win at Tranmere on Friday night. However, that win only papered over the problem, which is that they create far too few chances, even in scoring four, they only had a handful of attempts at goal. Over the season so far, they are bottom of the attempts on goal "table", with 50 strikes, only 23 of which have been on target. At the other end of the pitch, they have also struggled, conceding two or more, in 5 of their last 6 starts. So you can see, that all is far from well in deepest,darkest Essex.
City can go top with a win, will have some 1200 + supporters making a lot of noise in the stadium and have been happier on the road, where they do not have the expectation of a huge home crowd, waiting to be entertained, hanging over them. They have scored 12 in the last four away starts and it is hard to see them not getting a host of chances this evening."Over" is an option, but I will side with the visitors.
6 points Leicester City -1/4 ball 2.17 asian line.
