Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Scunthorpe United will be looking to put an end to their four-match winless run when they take on Southend United in the League Two round 37. The Iron are eleven points clear of bottom two, and, as things stand now, they should not find it hard to secure the League Two survival. Turkey midfielder Jem Karacan, who suffered an injury in the 1-1 draw with Oldham Athletic, is unlikely to feature against Southend United.
The Seasiders, on the other hand, produced a fine display in a goalless draw with Stevenage. Southend United are desperate to escape the relegation zone, and seeing that they want this win more than the Iron, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the Seasiders. In the first half of the season Southend United defeated Scunthorpe United thanks to James Olayinka’s second-half goal.
