COLCHESTER United will kick off the new League Two season with a trip to play AFC Wimbledon, on August 10.

Hopes are high that the U's will be able to challenge in the top half of the table in the upcoming campaign, under Danny Cowley.

However, a League Two SuperComputer is seemingly not quite as confident, predicting that the U's will finish 20th, next season.

Grosvenor Sport's SuperComputer is forecasting that Colchester will register a total of 51 points, in the 2024-25 campaign.

According to 1,000 simulations of the League Two games projecting how the season will go, Danny Cowley's side are predicted to finish fifth from bottom.

The SuperComputer is predicting that Newport County will end the season at the bottom of the table, with 35 points.

The Exiles are currently on the hunt for a new manager, following the departure of Graham Coughlan earlier this month.

Bromley may have waited 127 years to reach the Football League, but their stint is set to be short-lived according to the SuperComputer.

Andy Woodman's side reached the promised land via the Play-Offs at Wembley in May, but are predicted to finish four points off safety.

At the other end of the table, Fleetwood Town are set to win League Two next season, according to the SuperComputer, with Port Vale and Cheltenham Town also joining them in the third tier.

It predicts Fleetwood will accumulate 86 points to lift the title and make an immediate return to League One.

It predicts Bradford City, Accrington Stanley, Milton Keynes Dons and Gillingham are set to reach the play-off places at the end of the season, with Notts County only just missing out on the spots.

The SuperComputer is a probability model, not determined by human predictions or bias.

The SuperComputer estimates the outcome of each remaining fixture based on a team’s current strength based on factors such as league position and form and betting market odds.

The machine then simulates the remaining games in a season 1,000 times and constructs an average league table from the 1,000 simulations, to rule out anomalous results.
