Despite losing Paul Lambert to Norwich City just a few games into the season, Colchester continue to show that their 7-1 win at Carrow Road on the opening day of the season was by no means a fluke. They have been especially impressive at the Weston Homes Community Stadium this term, winning six of their seven matches, and they should make it seven when Walsall come to town. Since losing to Leeds at the end of August, they have won three on the bounce at home, beating Hartlepool, Charlton and Huddersfield without reply.
The Saddlers are what you might describe as an average League One team, showing enough consistency to avoid any trouble but lacking the quality to push for a top six place. Since winning away to a beleaguered Tranmere team in the middle of September, they have lost away to Hartlepool and MK Dons and Chris Hutchings‘ team are unlikely to avoid defeat here. Best odds for the Colchester win is 1.73 at Paddy Power.
