FootyMad's prediction ...
Its been a distinctly poor show from Crystal Palace at home in recent games, and, though I cannot see a run starting here, I do think the Eagles will at least gain a draw. No-score draw
|Crystal Palace||9 games since last home draw.|
Unbeaten run of 4 matches.
|Colchester U.||Not won in previous 8 away matches.|
4 games since last defeat.
