Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Saturday’s football match at Adams Park pits together Wycombe Wanderers and Southend United, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the standings ahead of Matchday 4. Wycombe were on the verge of beating Fleetwood Town on the road in their last league fixture, but the Fishermen eventually scored the equalizer in the dying minutes and picked up one point from the game.
The Wanderers, though, extended their unbeaten run in the 2019/2020 League One season to four games and they will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Southend United at Adams Park. The Shrimpers experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Lincoln City and seeing that they were beaten by bottom-table side Peterborough United at home in midweek, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Wycombe Wanderers.
Highlighted Player (Jason McCarthy):
Jason McCarthy is a product of the famous Southampton youth academy. McCarthy started his youth career in his hometown club back in 2002 and he made his senior debut with the Saints in the Premier League on December 26, 2014, coming as a substitute for Nathaniel Clyne in a 3-1 away victory at Crystal Palace.
After spending a couple of seasons on loan at Wycombe Wanderers and Walsall, the English defender signed a three-year deal with Barnsley in the summer of 2017 for an undisclosed fee. Jason McCarthy was struggling to secure a first-team football at the Oakwell stadium outfit and, as a result, he returned to Wycombe Wanderers on August 9, 2018, penning a three-year contract with the League One side.
His preferred foot is right, his main position centre-back, but he is used as a right-back as well. Jason McCarthy was born in Southampton on November 7, 1995.
Highlighted Team (Southend):
Nicknamed the Shrimpers, Southend United are a League One club which is located in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, England. Southend United were founded back in 1906 and have been wearing dark blue shirts and shorts ever since.
The colour of their away shirt is sky blue, with the team wearing black shorts when playing on the travels. Roots Hall is the club’s home ground, the venue which was built in 1952 and opened three years later. The capacity of the stadium is 12,392. Fellow Essex team Colchester United are seen as Southend United’s biggest rivals. The two clubs were in the race for top position in the League One in the 2005/2006 season, with Southend eventually winning the battle.
Southend United recorded their biggest ever win in the 1934/1935 season, with the team rolling over Golders Green 10-1 in the FA Cup. The Shrimpers suffered their biggest defeat in the 1965/1966 season when they were beaten by Brighton 9-1.
