Competition: League One
Market: Burton Albion win to nil
Odds: 7/5 @ Bet 365
Looking to climb into the top half of the League One standings, Burton Albion will host a struggling Southend on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, arguably enjoying their brightest run of the season so far, Burton have their sights set on mounting a charge for the top half in midweek. In their 16 League One matches this season, they have recorded six wins, five draws, and five defeats, scoring 20 and conceding 17 in return. With a points tally of 23, another victory on Tuesday night would see them climb as high as 11th and within touching distance of the play-off positions. As for their recent run of results, Burton have won three of their last four matches across all formats and it should also be noted that they have recorded four consecutive clean sheets on home soil.
As for the visitors, continuing on what has been a woeful run of form, Southend are seen as one of the leading contenders for the drop this season. In their 18 League One matches this year, the Blues have recorded just a single victory, two draws, and 15 defeats, scoring 17 and conceding 52 in return. Already sat 11 points adrift of safety, it should also be noted that Tuesday’s guests hold the worst defensive record in the division. As for their recent run of results, Southend have lost each of their last five League One matches on the bounce, shipping 19 and scoring just four in return.
