FootyMad's prediction ...

Its not been a very profitable last few weeks for Colchester U., and I'm afraid the Footymad team cannot see it getting too much better here. Look no further than honours being even at the end of this one. No-score draw

Sequence statistics:
Colchester U. Unbeaten run of 4 matches.
Cheltenham T. Undefeated in last 3 away games.
No win in the 4 most recent games.
