Shrimpers a sure thing at 6s

Live on Sky Sports 1: Sat 12.00: Southend are 6/1 (BetVictor) to defeat Burton 1-0 in their League Two play-off battle.

It wouldn’t take a genious to point out that the League Two play-off semi-final second leg between Southend and Burton possesses all of the hallmarks of a tight affair.

The pair both finished the campaign on 72 points, the three matches between the two this term have produced only three goals in total and the Brewers head to Roots Hall with a 1-0 advantage to protect, so may not be particularly adventurous.

Subsequently, banker hunters might want to start by considering Skybet’s 4/6 about a match tally of fewer than three goals.

In possession of a lead, Burton are odds-on at 8/13 with Stan James to reach the final while Paddy Power post 13/8 against the Shrimpers getting to Wembley but Ladbrokes quote the hosts at 23/20 to come out on top over the course of 90 minutes, a result that would keep them in the promotion hunt.

Ultimately though, this clash screams ‘extra-time’ especially as Southend edged out Burton 1-0 on their own patch in their league encounter as recently as a fortnight ago.

A repeat isn’t out of the question at 6/1 via BetVictor, especially as phil Brown’s men are defensively sound and the same firm chalk the Shrimpers up at 14/5 to sneak it by a one-goal margin.

Alternatively, Paddy Power price both teams at 11/1 to prevail after the drama of a penalty shootout.
