Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Southend United and Exeter Town face each other at Roots Hall on day 5 of the new League Two campaign. Southend have been anything but good at the start of the season, with the team collecting only one point in total from possible 12. The Shrimpers aim to put an end to their four-game winless run, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Exeter Town.
The Grecians, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Mansfield Town and Cambridge United. Exeter have been showing signs of improvement of late, and they should take advantage of Southend’s slow start to the season. The Grecians are more of a team than the Shrimpers, and seeing that the game will be played behind closed doors, away win should be considered. In their last encounter in League Two Southend defeated Exeter 1-0, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge.
