Looking to make an immediate return to winning ways this weekend, Southend will make the trip to Aldershot on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, last seen putting in another downbeat display, Aldershot find themselves in the midst of what has been a recent rut.

Managing to muster a points tally of 20, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat 18th in the standings and holding just a three-point buffer from slipping into the relegation zone. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 2-0 loss away at Wrexham, Aldershot have lost each of their last three National League contests on the bounce. Likewise, along with shipping over 1.5 goals in each of those three defeats, Saturday’s hosts have also managed to win just one of their previous four home fixtures.
As for the visitors, last seen putting in a downbeat display and watching their eye-catching unbeaten run come to an end, Southend will be seeking an immediate response this weekend. In their 20 National League matchups so far this season, they have recorded nine wins, six draws and five defeats, scoring 28 and conceding 16 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 33, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat fifth in the standings and holding a four-point buffer from slipping out of the play-off places. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 3-1 loss against Gateshead, that result brought an end to Southend’s six-match unbeaten run. Likewise, collecting nine points from their previous four National League contests on the road, we’re backing an away victory on Saturday afternoon.
