Betting Preview: Southend United vs. York City

30 January 2015

The odds ahead of the Sky Bet League Two clash at Roots Hall.

jSouthend hope to consolidate their place in the Sky Bet League Two play-offs by making it three wins on the spin when they host York City on Saturday afternoon.

 The Blues are made odds-on favourites at 3/4 with the Football League sponsors for the victory, York can be supported at 18/5 and the draw is a 13/5 shot.

Southend are on a great run of form with only one defeat suffered in their previous 11 matches, although it’s interesting to note that all three of their last three home games have finished 0-0. 

York have been a stronger side on their travels this season and they narrowly lost 1-0 to leaders Wycombe in their last away game.

A goalless draw to make it four matches in a row at Roots Hall without anyone finding the back of the net has to be the call.

Can Joe Pigott continue his good form in front of goal for the Blues? The Pig is backed at 11/8 to score anytime, as is fellow forward Jake Cassidy.

Top tip: A 0-0 draw at 8/1.
