Peterborough vs Southend United
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 3 February 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: ABAX Stadium, Peterborough

Peterborough got slapped in fact during the last week’s FA Cup action in front of the home crowd. The Posh were completely outplayed and demolished by Leicester City, who won the duel at ABAX 5-1 and advanced to the next round. This means that home squad has only one task remaining for this season – to secure one of the playoff spots! Peterborough hosts table strugglers Southend United on Saturday and only win could help them to narrow the gap from 6th placed Rotherham United.

High number of losses at home is the main reason why Grant McCann’s team is not in the tops six right now. Peterborough lost five out of fourteen matches at this stadium, mainly to top teams in the league. The only player who was consistent throughout the whole term is Jack Marriott. 23-years old striker and team leader netted 18 goals in 28 League One duels. If you are after some goal scorers market action, he is surely one of the top picks to consider.

As for their opponents, Southend United are entering this clash with eight losses from last ten domestic duels. Series of losses were interrupted last weekend though with surprising 3-2 home win against Scunthorpe.

Peterborough vs Southend: Head-to-head

These two teams played 15 head to head duels in the past; Southend have a small lead in terms of victories 6-5 but poor record on the road.

The average number of goals seen in their encounters is exactly 2.33 per game.

The most recent one has been won by Peterborough at this same stadium back in early December 2017.

Peterborough vs Southend: Prediction

20% win rate in the last ten matches says pretty much everything about Southend’ so I have no doubts about picking the winner for this duel. Backing Peterborough is the right thing to do, but there should be a lot of goals included as well.

  1. I think you’ve overlooked that Southend have bought in a new manager, Chris Powell, and his only match was that 3-2 victory over Scunthorpe. Southend have a decent squad and a new manager may have turned things around, Peterborough might look a sure bet on form but I’m not convinced this won’t be a draw.
