Tobias Gourlay reckons Colchester could struggle at the New Lawn in League 2 tonight
Forest Green v Colchester
In Spain last night, Espanyol were more dead parrot than chirpy Parakeets. They lost 1-2 at home to Elche – a big win for the visitors and a big L in our column.
We’re on home turf today for the League 2 game between Forest Green and Colchester. The hosts have been in good form at the New Lawn and we fancy them to shut down today’s visitors.
Rob Edwards’s men are top of League 2 with a W7-D2-L2 home record. Recently, they’ve won four of the last five, and kept clean sheets in 6/8. In each of the most recent four successes, the margin of victory was two goals.
Wayne Brown’s Colchester have taken one point from 18 on the road. They’ve scored just once across all of their last seven away days. In the five most recent defeats, the margin of victory was at least two goals in 4/5. Last season, they lost this particular fixture 3-0. We’re backing Forest Green to beat them with something to spare tonight.
