AFC Wimbledon suffered another setback on Boxing Day as they slipped to a 2-0 reverse against Oxford and with half of their home matches now having ended in defeat, the Dons look up against it as they entertain promotion-chasing Southend.
The Shrimpers have an impressive 7-0-3 record on the road and Ladbrokes makes them a tasty 5/4 to improve on that at Kingsmeadow, where the visitors are 8/1 via Stan James to end a three-match winless streak in League Two by grabbing the only goal.
Also set to register a success on their travels, are Burton Albion, who head to Morecambe. The Brewers picked up a fifth away triumph of the season at Northampton on Monday and as the Shrimps’ form has slumped of late – they’ve picked up just one point from their last three games on home soil – a modest flutter on a Burton victory at 21/10 (Blue Square) is hard to resist. Betfred meanwhile, double up the two visiting teams at a tasty 6/1.
Southend and Burton to win – 6/1 (Betfred)
