Hatters have suffered rather narrow losses at Portsmouth and Peterborough already and only held Sunderland to a 1-1 draw at this ground, which will hardly be a confidence booster with a 1-0 League Cup loss on tough away day at West Brom also on the records.

Southend have also only just ended a three-game winless streak on their end, beating Bradford City 2-0 in front of the home crowd and bouncing back after a disappointing League Cup exit in the hands of Brentford – where they conceded four goals in a 2-4 loss at home. They travel to Kenilworth Road Stadium hoping to build on the confidence booster, though, and capitalize on the rivals’ woes of recent.

Luton Town vs Southend: Head-to-head

  • The rivals have met only twice over the past ten years, sharing the League Two division back in 2014/15.
  • Both sides have bagged rather narrow home wins, where Luton earned a 2-0 win but Southend took revenge in a 1-0 home win.
  • Both have struggled for consistency but we now expect another very narrow occasion.

Luton Town vs Southend: Prediction

We will now back Luton to finally bag their first win this term, though, and hope they can build on the tough challenges we’ve seen them put on at this ground early in the campaign. We’ll thus go for a Home win, which comes at 2.10 and looks a solid bet to get behind with Southend’s struggles at the back.

However, we do feel we’re now in for a more exciting clash than what we’ve seen in their recent head-to-head matchups as Luton could have to outgun the visitors to secure the points. We have seen both enjoy quite high-scoring contests lately and we’ll now also back Over 2.5 goals FT at 2.00, which has also caught the eye of many value seekers.
