Southend United Preview – Can Shrimps grab lifeline?

A six-match winless run has left Southend United seven points adrift of safety and time is now running out fast for the Essex based side as they look to break their slump and grab what could be a vital win in their bid to avoid relegation from the Football League.

Southend have picked up just two wins out of their last 15 matches overall in League Two which were against Newport County and Forest Green Rovers but the goals have dried up since for the hosts and each of their last six league matches have all resulted in under 2.5 goals.

An overall home record of 4-3-11 13/25 includes 11 of Southend’s 18 home matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals and another low-scoring game could unfold here as well.

Our betting suggestion:

Walsall Preview – Can Saddlers halt slide?

A 2-1 defeat away from home at Bolton Wanderers on the weekend extended Walsall’s winless streak in League Two to 10 matches overall and resulted in Walsall dropping down to 20th place on the fourth tier ladder.

The Saddlers still possess an important eight-point cushion over their hosts, Southend United, but another defeat for the west midlands club on Tuesday night could see them sink nearer into the relegation mire with no momentum behind them at all.

Walsall have lost six of these last 10 matches while the draw has also featured prominently in their results throughout this campaign as their away record of 3-10-4 21/23 indicates, and 10 of Walsall’s 17 away matches have also been under 2.5 goals.
