League Two pair Southend and Cheltenham are both struggling for form at precisely the wrong time as the campaign enters the home straight and both will be hoping to use their clash at Roots Hall to give their respective promotion bids a shot in the arm.
On home soil, the Shrimpers are BetVictor’s 23/20 favourites while the Robins are a 5/2 chance at Ladbrokes and Skybet quote the draw at 12/5. The visitors’ six-match winless streak however, suggests that the hosts should have the edge and they’re 11/4 (Paddy Power) to prevail ‘to nil’ against a Cheltenham team without a goal in four matches.
At Underhill meanwhile, Torquay are a 5/4 chance via Coral to boost their promotion hopes by getting the better of struggling Barnet.
