Southend United vs Peterborough United - Free Betting Tips

Southend United
Peterborough United

A single point separated Southend United from Peterborough United last season, but both disappointingly finished outside the playoff spots. Moving ahead to the new season, things have started on a promising note for Peterborough, who have won five out of six games to take the lead in League One. They play on the road against a team that traditionally loses few games at Roots Hall Stadium, but may have hope for a victory this year, as Southend United are struggling to win back-to-back games.

Southend United vs Peterborough United Betting Tips: Form Guide

Southend Shockingly Inconsistent

Southend United won three consecutive games and kept a clean sheet in the last four matches played in the last season of League One. That surge brought them close to the pack of teams chasing a playoff spot, but they eventually fell short. Since that promising-yet-unfulfilled run, things have taken a turn for the worse, and the Shrimpers have yet to win back-to-back matches in any competition this season. The signs of a disappointing season were, unfortunately, there in preseason, with the side unable to claim a victory, as well as experiencing elimination from the League Cup in August.

At Roots Hall Stadium they scored five goals and conceded just as many, but managed only one victory to while falling to two defeats. The only bright spot is the recent victory in the Checkatrade Trophy against Cambridge, though it is worth noting that fixture was one they always should have won, given Cambridge are a League Two side. The overall problems for Southend have been as inconsistent as their results; scoring goals has never been a problem for this team and their goal production is at high levels once more, but the biggest challenge for them is keeping clean sheets. It seems unlikely they will suddenly rediscover their defensive form against a strong Peterborough side, and as a result, our Southend vs Peterborough match previews suggest that this game will once again interrupt Southend’s momentum.

Peterborough United Seeking Return To Domestic Delights

Peterborough’s season thus far has been extremely promising, with their draw on September 1 at home against Doncaster the first match in the last 23 to end without a winner. Peterborough United play offensive football both at home and on the road and frequently go for broke regardless of their opponent, a style that has earned them plenty of support from neutrals across the country. However, Doncaster were willing to take more chances than many of the Posh’s opponents, and chose to field a starting formation with three strikers — though it wasn’t enough for victory, it did signal that the Posh were not quite as invincible as they had previously looked. After winning five games in League One and splitting points last weekend, Peterborough United were also eliminated from the LDV Vans Trophy; while MK Dons allowed a three goal lead to go to waste, they eventually won at penalties.

This was the first setback for Peterborough United, but they are yet to lose a match in the domestic championship, so we can’t foresee them being overly rattled by the recent result. Going by their previous form, playing on the road doesn’t mean that they will shift into a defensive gear and settle for one point against Southend. As a result, our Southend United vs Peterborough United betting tips for today trust them to come out firing on all cylinders and try to take the lead early on. Cummings is the most dangerous player, with six goals in just as many games and he will be joined up front by Godden, both of whom will make life very difficult indeed for Southend’s defence.

Southend United vs Peterborough United Preview: Recent Meetings

Peterborough United have twice as many points as Southend United right now, but over the years, the matches between them have always been difficult to call. Southend actually have the better of the head-to-head record, with seven victories and five defeats, while four matches resulted in draws. The visitors prevailed only once at Roots Hall Stadium, but the timing seems to be just right for Peterborough to improve this unimpressive record.

Our Southend United vs Peterborough United betting tips take into account the high number of draws recorded recently in direct matches. Three of the last six matches ended without a winner, while Southend United won twice on the road and were defeated in the LDV Vans Trophy match. Another interesting detail is that in only half of all the games played between them, both teams scored; we’re not sure we’ll see the same in this fixture, but who knows, history may just repeat itself.

Southend United vs Peterborough United Prediction: Peterborough United or Draw

Peterborough United have suffered two setbacks in early September, but they are still the hottest team in the English League One. The fact remains that they haven’t lost a single match in this championship and our Southend vs Peterborough prediction is that they will extend the invincible run. A draw on the road wouldn’t be regarded as a bad result, as it will keep them at the top of the table, or at least within striking distance of Portsmouth… but we think they’re going to go for the full three points.

Under normal circumstances, Southend United would push for a victory, but they are likely to be (understandably) wary of Peterborough United’s attacking prowess. The visitors have two great strikers to count on and both are well capable of taking advantage of Southend’s defensive problems. A low scoring victory for the visiting team would come as no surprise, but risk-averse punters should go for the double chance wager. Southend United 1-1 Peterborough United with both goals scored in the same half is another bet worth considering if seeking the best odds, but on a simple “who will win?”, it’s impossible to look past Peterborough for this one.
