Gillingham vs Southend Prediction

Clashes between these teams have always led way to goal-fests. In fact, eight of the previous eleven such games and five of the last six at this venue had goals at either end of the pitch. In addition, the guests of the day are on a scoring streak of 11 straight ties against this opponent and found the back of the net twice or more in three of the four former encounters.

As such, despite the away handicap, and their struggles, they should figure out a way to slot in at least one goal.

Going on, the home advantage will surely come to the aid of Steve Evans’s men. Moreover, they have been clearly better than the Seasiders this season, and especially on the road, Gary Waddock’s men have been a disaster.

As such, the hosts should manage a victory after a tiring set of ninety minutes.
