Burton vs Southend Prediction
Burton conceded early on the road against Sunderland the last match-day but held their nerves to hit back twice and secure the win.
On the other hand though, Southend’s woes continued the previous game week too, as they had let in four unanswered goals from Oxford. In the first minute itself, the visitors found the back of the net, and towards the end of the fixture, scored twice in two minutes to take their tally to four.
This Tuesday, take into account how extremely weak Southend have been these last several match-days, and maybe this campaign as a whole. They are on a losing streak of five games in the league and have so far recorded a single win from their eighteen match-ups.
In addition, they have lost a record 15 fixtures of these, and conceded the most goals in the whole competition, 52, while no other squad have even let in 40 in total.
Moreover, the team remained winless in 22 of their former 25 games and lost 20 of these as well. On the road, they lost eight of their preceding ten trips and failed to score in two of their prior three.
Meanwhile, Burton won three of their previous four overall games and were unbeaten at home in seven of their past ten appearances. Most importantly, they could significantly improve their league standing with a win this Tuesday, and considering their home advantage too, things are shaping for Burton to dominatingly post three points on the board.
