Plymouth Argyle vs Southend United: Preview and Predictions

Plymouth Argyle vs Southend United
England – League One
Date: Friday, 30 March 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Home Park (Plymouth).

Plymouth’s superb run of form has come to an end last weekend when the Pilgrims could not avoid a defeat to Charlton Athletic away at The Valley. The loss has thus instantly dropped the team out of the top six in the league ladder and Derek Adams will have to find the way to motivate his lads to rebound right away on Friday when they host Southend United.

The hosts will have a massive challenge to break the deadlock past the Shrimpers here given that the visitors have been super stern at the back lately. Southend United have only allowed a single goal in last four league matches and the team will generally come into this high on confidence after beating the likes of Rotherham United 2-0 on Saturday.

Moving forward, Chris Powell’s side is unbeaten in last four league games on the road conceding only once in the process. Maintaining such streak will be a massive challenge for them as well if we know that the Pilgrims have been spectacular in front of the home crowd recently. Plymouth will head into this off the back of four straight wins at Home Park netting ten goals along the way.

The Shrimpers will carefully sit at the back and try and keep it goalless for as long as possible against the in-form Plymouth side.

Given that none of last seven H2H games has seen three or more goals, we have to try with the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at the odds of 1.70.

Alternatively, the draw indeed looks like the most probable of three outcomes and we’ll go for it at 3.40 odds.
