Recent respective form guides

Colchester United's woeful home form means they have chalked up just a single victory, with 5 defeats, from the last six. While U's have scored 5, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Walsall's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. The Saddlers's have scored 11 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 12.

Colchester United are stuck down in the relegation zone of npower League One with a return of just 23 points from their 27 games thus far.

Walsall's 41 points from 29 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 10th position.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Nothing seems to be going right for the U's at home recently, and we can see no immediate turn around in fortunes as the Saddlers come away with an easy victory. Away win
