Harry Mail

“This is a big game in the League Two relegation battle. Colchester United needed their win at Crawley Town and that will give them confidence with Sutton United chasing them down.

“The U’s will see this clash against Grimsby Town as one they simply have to win. The visitors, on the other hand, will probably just want to avoid defeat.

“David Artell’s side are nearly there after beating Crewe Alexandra and they will just want this campaign over and done with so they can start planning for next term.

“I don’t think there will be too much to separate these two teams but I fancy the hosts to sneak a significant win on home soil.”

Colchester United vs Grimsby Town prediction: 2-1

Who is this?

James Ray

“A win for either side would be huge here. I think both will be okay in the relegation fight come the end of the season, but three points would have Grimsby Town safe while Colchester United would be on the brink.

“However, I can see this ending level. That wouldn’t really help either side.

“It would be another brick in the wall as they push towards safety but I feel both teams will come away from this feeling a bit underwhelmed with the outcome.”

Colchester United vs Grimsby Town prediction: 1-1
