On first glance looking at this fixture, you’d be forgiven for looking at the league table and think this can only go one way. But Colchester, despite sitting 20th in the league, come into this game actually having the better form with two draws and two wins from their last four games. Forest Green, sitting atop of the league, haven’t notched a victory in their last seven, losing two of them.
Does that mean we’re siding with a Colchester win? To put it bluntly, no. No, we’re not.

While Colchester are certainly having a resurgence since Wayne Brown has taken over, their home form is wobbly to say the least. Despite beating Port Vale at home in their last fixture, they previously hadn’t won their previous eight at the JobServe Community Stadium.
So let’s get into the bets:
Forest Green have dominated the recent meetings between the two, coming out on top three times in the last four meetings. Matt Stevens leads the goalscorer markets in the league, finding the net 22 times already this season. Forest Green might not have got the results of late but they haven’t played poorly. They create plenty of chances and we expect Matt Stevens to be on the end of those.
Neither of these sides look particularly convincing at the back. While Stevens can bang one in for Forest Green, Colchester will fancy their chances too and have enough quality with the likes of Freddie Sears leading the line. Both teams to score will nicely juice up the odds here.
