Southend vs MK Dons Prediction
The winless run has continued for the fifth time for Southend as they were defeated by Bolton on the road with a 3-2 score on the road.
Apart from that, they are still yet to win at home in their 10 attempts so far in the campaign. Also, they have scored just 9 goals and conceded 32 goals in the process.
In the meantime, MK Dons have a ten point lead in overall league form over the host. They will be coming after a 3-1 loss against Gillingham in their previous league clash.
Also, on the road, the visitor has won just one of their 10 league appearances until now. Besides that, they have scored 9 goals and taken in 16 goals in the same period.
Since both teams are strong contenders for relegation this season, finding a winner of the two is pretty hard as it looks like both have a chance. Southend is the worst home team in the campaign this season. So their performance at home is doubtful in the event.
On the other hand, MK Dons is also at the bottom part of the table in away fixtures. However, they are slightly better on the road. Even so, we can count on both teams to score as they both have conceded many goals in the league so far. Apart from that, there is a chance of total goals to be under 3.5 goals in the match.
So, henceforth, put your wager in both teams to score in a low scoring affair under 3.5 goals in ninety minutes.
