COLCHESTER V HARROGATE
Colchester United won’t want a repeat of their last result here following a 2-0 League Two defeat last time out to Tranmere Rovers.
Josh Hawkes (54') and Peter Clarke (71') scored for Tranmere Rovers.
Colchester United have really been misfiring in recent times. Their ‘goals for’ figure equals just 4 against opposition teams over their previous 6 outings. In those games, Colchester United have also seen the number of goals that have gone against them total 7.
Harrogate Town come into this encounter after a 6-1 League Two win against Scunthorpe United in their previous outing.
Throughout their 6 most recent matches, Simon Weaver's Harrogate Town have slotted home 12 times - yielding them a goals scored per game average of 2.
Ahead of this clash, Harrogate Town are undefeated in their last 2 away league matches.
Prediction: Over 1.5 Goals
LINCOLN V CHARLTON
Lincoln City will be hoping to bounce back here after the 1-2 EFL Trophy defeat in their last game at the hands of Sunderland.
It’s not been often in recent times where Lincoln City have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that Lincoln City have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 9 goals during that time.
Charlton Athletic head into the meeting following on from a 4-1 EFL Trophy win with the eclipse of Southampton U23s in their last fixture.
Indicating their involvement in productive matches, goals have been scored 22 times in the previous 6 games in which Charlton Athletic have taken to the pitch, making it a mean average of 3.67 goals per meeting. Opposition teams have got 11 of this grand total. Previous results aside, we’ll just have to find out if such a trend shall be sustained in this upcoming game.
Prediction: Both team to score
GILLINGHAM V SUNDERLAND
Gillingham will be hoping to return to winning ways here following the 2-0 League One loss in their previous game against Wycombe Wanderers.
Garath McCleary (2') and Brandon Hanlan (7') scored for Wycombe Wanderers.
It has been all too rare in recent games where Gillingham haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that Gillingham have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 8 goals in the process. In any event, we must now wait to see if that pattern will be maintained in this game.
Sunderland will go into this meeting after a 2-1 EFL Trophy win versus Manchester United U23s in their previous match.
Lee Johnson's Sunderland have converted a total of 12 times in the course of their previous 6 matches. The number of goals that have been scored against them during that same period comes to 7.
Ahead of this meeting, Sunderland are without an away win for the past 3 league matches.
Prediction: Both team to score
