Colchester won 1-0 the last time these two sides met back in December.

Colchester Form


Colchester have struggled to pick up wins in League Two of late, going eight matches without picking up three points. 

Steven Ball’s team have drawn three of their last four matches in the league, starting with successive home draws against Cheltenham and Cambridge. They were then well beaten away from home after going down 3-0 at Morecambe.

In their last match, Colchester drew 0-0 away to Stevenage as they made it three games without a goal on the road. At home, they have drawn three of their last five home matches in League Two.

Colchester Team News & Injuries


Midfielder Tom Lapslie is a doubt with a groin injury, while captain Harry Pell is suspended.

Scunthorpe Form


Scunthorpe’s away form does not bode well for them in this contest, with the Iron losing four of their last five matches on the road. 

Scunthorpe had also lost three in a row in League Two before winning their last two matches at home. Those defeats came against Stevenage, Salford and Barrow before a confidence boosting 3-0 win over Grimsby.

That then resulted in a 2-0 win over Port Vale in their last league outing. Forward Ryan Loft scored a brace as he made it three goals in his last two appearances.

Scunthorpe Team News & Injuries


Captain Jordan Clarke is missing for Scunthorpe due to a knee injury.
