Colchester U. prepare to entertain Luton Town at Layer Road Ground on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 3 of the 9 previous games, with the U's winning just 2.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Layer Road Ground was just last season, in December 2003, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a League Division Two match.

FootyMad's prediction ...
Nothing seems to be going right for the U's at home recently, and I can see no immediate turn around in fortunes as the The Hatters come away with an easy victory. Away win
|Colchester U.||Failed to win in previous 3 home matches.|
|Luton Town||Undefeated in last 3 away games.|
