Colchester United vs Rochdale Match Analysis and Prediction – Sports Betting Tricks

Rochdale will still be searching for their first win in League Two this season when they travel to Colchester Community Stadium to take on Colchester United in a crucial bottom of the league clash on Saturday.

Both sides have had difficult campaigns in League Two so far with Colchester winning just once in their nine matches, while picking up three draws and five defeats in the process; whereas Rochdale remain winless after nine fixtures, picking up two draws and seven defeats in the run.

As a result of the decimal starts, Colchester sit 21st in the league standing on six points, two places and two points above the relegation zone, while Rochdale languish at the bottom with only two points, two points off safety.

Therefore both sides will be desperate for a win on Saturday with Colchester looking to avoid falling into the relegation zone, while Rochdale will want to get their campaign off and climb of the bottom of the table.

Rochdale claimed a surprising and confidence-boosting 1-0 win over Liverpool U21 in their EFL Trophy tie last Tuesday, and they will be hoping to build on it as they seek their opening win this season in the league.
