Southend re-ignited their promotion hopes with an emphatic 4-0 triumph against a decent Cheltenham side last time out and the Shrimpers, at 11/8 with bet365, will fancy their chances of making it back-to-back victories as they visit off-colour Bradford.
The Bantams have taken just one point from their last six matches to slip back towards danger and with only one home win to their name this year Phil Parkinson’s men look up against it as they face League Two’s most successful travellers.
Striker Fredy Eastwood meanwhile, rejoined Southend on-loan recently and has quickly got back into the scoring habit, finding the net in just his second Shrimpers appearance last Friday. Prolific in his last spell with the club, Eastwood tempts at 11/2 (Boylesports) to break the deadlock at Valley Parade.
Accrington are safely settled in mid-table but they haven’t picked up many points on the road of late and they have to be opposed as they make the long journey to second-placed Torquay. The Gulls have won six of their last eight to give themselves a great chance of going up and strong at home, they’re hard to ignore at 4/6 via BetVictor to send Stanley home empty-handed.
