Home side definitely missed the chance to get involved in the battle for the playoff spot after Friday’s defeat against direct contenders Plymouth Argyle. They remained on the 12th place being ten points behind the top six. Christopher Powell’s side has done a pretty good job in the front, while their defence allowed too many goals taking into consideration the ambition to challenge the promotion. Southend United are one of the best teams when it comes to playing at home ground since they have allowed four defeats in 20 matches. They should remain around their current position and can put a good performance in front of their fans.

The visitors are one point below their opponents, however in the last four matches they’ve suffered three defeats while being able to celebrate only once. Tom Eaves and the lads scored 43 times this season, while their defence conceded the same number of goals. If Gillingham were as much successful at home as when playing at away grounds, they might have been able to challenge the promotion spot, since they managed to get back home with a win in eight occasions. They can put another good away performance since they are not under any pressure.

Southend United vs Gillingham: Head-to-head

Gillingham have been much more successful lately and they haven’t lost a match against this opposition since 2012. During that period, the visitors have celebrated six times while Southend United managed to get away with a point only three times. In the last eight clashes, both teams were able to score.

Southend United vs Gillingham: Prediction

The visitors might be able to remain undefeated once again and this one should end with a draw.

Since both teams can play without pressure, we might be able to see goals in both nets ninth time in a row.
