Southend United vs Coventry City: Prediction

Both the teams have a similar performance till now. Hosts and the visitors are fresh from victories in the league, so morale will be sky-high among both set of players.

Apart from the presence of two in-form forwards-Cox and Hopper-there is not much difference in both the squads. Maybe that is the only difference that matters for the home side.
