Recent respective form guides

Colchester United's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While U's have scored 6, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Hull City's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the The Tigers have hit 6 goals, 13 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Colchester U. find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 27 games have yielded only 26 points. Hull City's 38 points from 27 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 10th position.
