Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After sharing the spoils with Grimsby Town at the weekend, Southend United will be looking to escape the relegation zone when they take on Cambridge United at Roots Hall. The Seasiders have been in a fine form of late, and seeing that a win over Cambridge could see them move away from bottom two, home win should be considered. Midfielder James Olayinka, who suffered an injury at the weekend, is unlikely to feature in the midweek clash.
Cambridge United, on the other hand, aim to regain top position in the standings. Since both Southend United and Cambridge United are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Tuesday’s clash, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. When the two teams met in the EFL Trophy two years ago Southend recorded a 3-1 win over Cambridge.
