Since winning 7-1 at Norwich on the opening day of the season, Colchester haven‘t looked back and are a team that can challenge for the automatic promotion places this term. Adrian Bothroyd proved at Watford what he can do with a limited squad and the manager has steered them to fourth in the table, with home form which involves them winning six of their seven matches at the Weston Homes Community Stadium. The U‘s have won their last four home games and Saturday‘s 4-0 win at Bromley illustrates that this is a team playing with plenty of confidence right now.
Considering Exeter were promoted to League One last season, they have made a decent fist of things in this division, although the Grecians have been struggling on the road. City have managed just one win from their seven away matches and that came at Carlisle back in August. Considering that they have lost their last two road games by 4-0 and 3-0 scorelines at Huddersfield and Exeter respectively, it‘s hard to see Paul Tisdale‘s team showing the necessary improvement to get anything from this game. Best odds for the Colchester win is 1.65 at Unibet.
