Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Accrington Stanley will be aiming to make amends for a massive 4-1 defeat to Ipswich Town when they welcome Southend United at their Wham Stadium. The Accy continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels, with the team netting 14 goals in total in the last four home games in the League One.
John Coleman’s troops aim to escape the danger zone in the standings, and they will not have a better chance to do so as Southend United are having a season to forget. The Shrimpers have collected only ten points from possible 75 in the English third tier so far this season, and it should come as no surprise that they are seen as underdogs in the Wham Stadium clash. In the first half of the season Colby Bishop’s goal helped Accrington defeat Southend 1-0.
