Southend vs Walsall Prediction & Match Preview

Southend United vs Walsall
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 23 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Roots Hall Stadium (Southend-on-Sea).

In the 15th round of English League One, Southend United are going to host Walsall in the Tuesday’s evening clash.

Home side is sneaking around the middle of the table, but they are not too far from the top six. They are five points behind the promotion playoffs zone and their unbeatable streak has come to an end in the latest round.

Christopher Powell’s side has been pretty productive so far, while their defence should tighten up their lines.

However, Southend United should improve their home performances as they managed to celebrate just two wins when playing in front of their fans.

Walsall are two points ahead of their rivals and they’ve been in variable form lately. Their defence is doing a fairly god job, but their teammates in the final third should improve their finishing.

Morgan Ferrier and the lads are putting excellent away performances as they managed to get back home with a win from four outings so far in the season.

If the visitors manage to keep up the form, they might challenge one of the places in the top six.

Southend vs Walsall: Head-to-head

Both teams have been pretty successful in their head to head clashes and Southend United have celebrated just one victory more than their rivals.

Drawn matches have been rarely seen in their encounters and the visitors have been putting good displays.

They haven’t been putting too efficient displays lately and in the last two matches the hosting team didn’t manage to score.

Southend vs Walsall: Prediction

This is going to be a pretty tight clash, as both sides have been putting similar level of performances lately. The fairest outcome of this one should be a draw, mostly because the visitors’ form hasn’t been stable recently.

Since the crowd hasn’t been able to enjoy too many goals in the clashes of these two teams and they have been playing pretty tight lately, this one should be another low-scoring one. We don’t expect to see more than two goals in total.

Southend vs Walsall: Bet Tips

  • Draw @ 3.75 (11/4)
  • Under 2.5 goals @ 1.80 (4/5).
