Sunderland vs Southend Match Preview

Sunderland have struggled to perform on the road and it was nothing strange seeing them lose lately, but Phil Parkinson’s men have been much more confident at Stadium of Light and they now host Southend looking to prove it once again, desperate for points to break into the League One top 6.

Black Cats come into the busy week with a 1-0 loss at Shrewsbury behind them and struggles to score have felt salient on the road. Still, the wins over MK Dons (2-1), Grimsby (3-2), and Tranmere (5-0) will be more of a pick-me-up ahead of the clash – if they can put the Tuesday’s League Cup trip to Oxford behind them.

Southend have really struggled to make an impact this term and they only see Bolton below them on the league table, with five points to their name after 15 outings. They saw six losses in last seven outings across competitions and only interrupted the streak with a 1-1 draw at Tranmere, where they came close to their second win this term but Paul Mullin’s penalty-kick equalizer with five minutes on the clock denied them.

Shrimpers have been scoring goals away from home and no one can deny it, but this has hardly meant they could capitalize. They’ve seen an unpredictable run including two thrashing losses (4-3 at Shrewsbury and 3-1 at Gillingham) and a 0-1 win at MK dons on three trips since mid-September and we don’t really see them causing an upset now.

We should still be in for an exciting game of football and with that in mind, we hope to see Sunderland turn it their way as we go for a Home win and Over 2.5 Goals FT at 4/5 with Paddy Power. We’ve been used to such games on their end here and we hope for more of the same.

We do hope the visitors can get on the scoresheet and we’ll now also go for a Yes on Both teams to score at 19/20 with bet365. Sunderland lacked stability at the back and while we don’t feel it will be costly, we don’t see them keeping a clean sheet.
