Southend vs Lincoln City Prediction
It will not be a tough search to find the favorites in the clash. The relegation prone host will be certainly off charts to win the three points. With their overall league standings, he punters can find that Southend is not the best option despite having the home ground advantage.
To justify that, let us take a look at the current form of Southend in the league. The Shrimpers are the worst team at home in the league as they have not won any of their 12 home matches so far. Eight of their 12 winless matches have turned into a loss.
Besides, the host has damaged their overall form also in the campaign this season. They have marked just two wins in their 27 league appearances until now. Also, their previous encounter ended in a 3-1 loss away from home against Doncaster.
Lincoln had their previous clash in the league against Portsmouth at home. The host was unable to find the back of the net when the guest did it twice in the ninety minutes. Michael Appleton will be worried about their recent performance but will surely make a comeback in the league.
The Imps have not much luck with their away fixtures. Their away performance has been rusty lately with five winless trips in a row. However, compared to the host, Lincoln is in a better position with at least five unbeaten games in their 16 away clashes so far.
So, the punters can easily go with Lincoln to win since the home team has not gathered any league home wins this season so far. Since Lincoln is playing away from home with the away handicap, it is safer to draw no bet upon Lincoln.
Also, both teams are in poor form in the league and the total score would probably be under 3.5 goals in ninety minutes. Thus, there is another safe bet for the punters in the goals area.
