Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Saturday’s football game at Roots Hall pits together Southend United and Port Vale, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2020/21 season. The Seasiders are stuck at the bottom of the table ahead of Matchday 10, and, no doubt, the team’s main goal is to secure the League Two survival. The rock-bottom side are low on confidence ahead of the visit of Port Vale as they are on a four-game losing run in the league.
The Valiants, on the other hand, are eyeing promotion to the League One, and we are positive that they will go all-out attack against Southend United. Port Vale proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Oldham and Cheltenham, and despite Cristian Montano’s injury, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the visiting team. Port Vale are undefeated in the previous three meetings with Southend United.
