Southend vs Accrington Prediction & Match Preview

Southend vs Accrington
England – League 1
Date: Saturday, 28 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Roots Hall (Southend on Sea).

The Southend faithful were finally given a reason to cheer last week, as the hosts picked up their first win in eight games with a 1-0 scoreline over MK Dons. Sadly, the squad have been at the losing end seven times so far, and are deservedly just a point away from hitting rock bottom in the table.

Accrington have been recording back to back draws in their previous two games, the last of which was against Blackpool by a 1-1 scorecard. The visitors too, have just one win to their names so far, but to their defense, the squad have admitted defeat on just four occasions.

Nevertheless, with both teams sporting far from impressive records under their belts, count on both teams to be optimistic of walking away with the three points.

Southend vs Accrington Head to head (h2h)

  • Half of their past six clashes here have been low scoring ones with under 2.5 goals on the charts.
  • Four of their last seven fixtures have seen goals down each end.

Southend vs Accrington Prediction

As far as home statistics are concerned, Southend have literally hit the “south end” of the table. The hosts have the worst home record at hand and are yet to taste success here in the new season. It is also worth mentioning that the home team have found the back of the net no more than four times in their clashes here while conceding as many as eleven.

Furthermore, the away side have lost just twice in their past five outings in League One. Given Southend’s dismal home record at hand and taking into account that Accrington have come out on top in two of their last four visits here, a double chance favoring the visitors is certainly the more plausible outcome.

In addition, three of the last five away goals for Accrington in the league have come in the opening forty-five minutes of the game. Considering that they have been consistent in breaching their foes right from the first half in their previous two outings as well, by all means, count on Accrington to get their names on the scoresheet before the break.
