Southend vs Coventry Match Preview

Coventry travel to Southend for their Matchday 34 clash in great shape after closing the gap to pace-setters Rotherham with an important 1-0 win over Portsmouth (1-0) on Tuesday, now sitting just two points behind with a game in hand. They’ve been rock-solid at the back and managed to capitalize on such performances, which promises a very motivated outfit once again.

Sky Blues bagged 23 points in last nine league outings and while they’ve seen a thrilling yet disappointing FA Cup exit in the hands of Birmingham (on penalties after a 2-2 draw in the replay), it has done little to put a dent in their confidence. They scored two or more goals in five of their last seven away games too and we now hope for more of the same.

Southend have seen quite a contrasting spell of form lately and sit on the other end of the table with just 16 points to their name. They have seen losses at Blackpool (2-1) and Peterborough (4-0) over the past seven days and while they’ve been tougher to beat at this ground, it will be tough to put such results behind them.

Shrimpers have a 13-point gap to AFC Wimbledon who are just outside the relegation zone and this has seen many rating them prime favourites for relegation alongside Bolton. They have been doing their bit at Roots Hall with three draws and a win in last four outings but we don’t see them keeping it up here.

We will thus back Coventry to snatch all three points and keep hold of their great streak of recent, going for an Away win at 3/4 with BetVictor and hoping to see them building on all-important points won over the past few weeks.

We feel a lot will depend on their defensive performance, though, and we thus expect a narrow occasion in the making. We’re thus hoping to see few goals and we’ll also back Under 2.5 Goals FT, which comes at Evens with bet365!
