    Background

    Twenty-second placed Wycombe Wanderers host tenth placed Colchester United in this Saturday’s League One derby clash.

    Form: Wycombe LLLWLW 19/24 (Home: LWWLWW 6/24) vs. Colchester WLDDWW 3/24 (Away: WLWLDW 3/24)

    At home Wycombe have the eighth strongest attack (avg. +1.67 goals per game) and the weakest defence in League One (avg. -1.67 goals per game). On the road Colchester have the eighth weakest attack (avg. +1.13 goals per match) and the eighth strongest defence (avg. -1.25 goals per match).

    Wycombe have won four of their last five home games, while Colchester are unbeaten in their last four League One matches. The last four league meetings between Wycombe and Colchester have ended in 1 - 1 draws.

    The Chairboys will be aiming for a third home win in a row, a feat they’ve not managed in the third division since November/December 2001. The U’s will be targeting a third successive league win for the first time since October/November 2010.

    Wycombe will be buoyed by their last two home results: a 5-0 demolition of Hartlepool followed by a 4-2 win over Leyton Orient on Tuesday. Colchester will also be brimming with confidence after a 3-0 win over Preston, followed by their excellent midweek 2-0 triumph over Charlton which ended The Addick’s eighteen-match unbeaten run at The Valley.

    It’s sure to be a lively affair, but who shall emerge victorious?

    This weekend’s Npower League One programme:

    10/03/2012 Brentford (9) v Sheff Utd (2)
    10/03/2012 Carlisle (7) v Bury (15)
    10/03/2012 Charlton (1) v Notts County (6)
    10/03/2012 Huddersfield (4) v Rochdale (24)
    10/03/2012 MK Dons (5) v Exeter (21)
    10/03/2012 Oldham (13) v Yeovil (17)
    10/03/2012 Preston (14) v S****horpe (18)
    10/03/2012 Sheff Wed (3) v Bournemouth (12)
    10/03/2012 Stevenage (8) v Chesterfield (23)
    10/03/2012 Tranmere (20) v Leyton Orient (16)
    10/03/2012 Walsall (19) v Hartlepool (11)
    10/03/2012 Wycombe (22) v Colchester (10)

    Team News

    Should Kayode Odejayi shake off an ankle injury from midweek in time for Saturday, John Ward is likely to name an unchanged side for a third match in a row after despatching Preston and Charlton.

    I’m hopeful that if we play as we have done in the last two games we should beat you, but that’s a big if! Alas you lot always seem to throw a spanner in the works these days, so a 2-2 draw will be my prediction.

    Excellent post Mike, my how you've mellowed.
    Depends on how JW sets the side up, 4-5-1 ?, boring draw, 4-4-2 ?, good open game that could end up 3-3.

    Maybe Waddock will bring in 4 loan players. Failing that, I've been investigating some very strong bellows and if we can hire a few people to stand with these behind our goal it might help to repel attacks.

    apparently when Col u fans heard that Katy Perry sing, "do you ever feel like a plastic bag" they thought it was about them.

    We've had some good results at home but this will be our toughest game since the Huddersfield mauling. So its a hard one to call and once again depends which Wycombe team turns up. The Col U boss said the other day that he's confused by our recent results. Well join the club mate!

    Good first half but sounds as though Colchester are getting on top. Has 2-0 written all over it (to them)

    Wycombe back on top but sounds as though both teams will be happy with the draw. Well done the Blues. Much better than I expected.
