Dover vs Southend Match Preview
Southend have struggled and Sol Campbell made little impact since taking over, seeing losses to Ipswich (1-3), Sunderland (1-0), and Portsmouth (4-1) in their last three outings. They now travel to Dover for their FA Cup clash and surely hope for a pick-me-up against the National League rivals, desperate to finally capitalize on goals scored.
Shrimpers conceded three or more goals in five of their last seven outings and this will be even more worrying, with an obvious need to regain stability at the back. They have been scoring goals along the way but could now need more to snatch a ticket to the 2nd Round at the Perrys Crabble Stadium.
Dover have seen a goalless draw at Flyde last week but it’s far from being said they can boast any consistency at the back, as this was their first clean sheet since September. They will surely know it’s a good chance for an upset here but we don’t really feel they have a lot to be happy about lately themselves.
Whites have struggled to impress at home this term and this will be more of a streak to break, despite bagging all three points in a 3-1 win over Eastleigh last time out. This was only their second win in ten outings at this ground and we don’t really feel they have what it takes to build on it on Sunday.
We’ll thus go for Southend to make the 90-mile trip count and we’ll go for them to make their way to the next round with an Away win priced at 7/5 with William Hill, which seems like great value despite their struggles to perform in League One lately.
However, we don’t really expect a conventional game for either side and we’re now going for a narrow occasion, hoping to see Shrimpers keeping it together at the back. We’ll thus go for Under 2.5 Goals FT, which comes at 13/10 with BetVictor!
