Leeds United - Southend United

Leeds are back! After 4 consecutive defeats without a scored goal and dropping into play-off zone, team finally played one very good game. They were dominating first half should have scored once or two time more,they controlled the game and kept 2-1 win. This is their next “must win” game to carry the hopes for automatic promotion. Team again looks really good, excluding Beckford who reached the focus level he had playing for Wealdstone. They all know play-off would be another dead end and rest of the games is “all in” for Leeds. Striker Becchio is back after a head injury, as well as defender Ben Parker. Only missing is defender Jason Crowe. 

Southend are struggling, they’re third from the bottom and 3 points far from relegation line. Their run of results looks terrible. Eight consecutive defeats on the road, 14 of last 15 games and didn’t score in 9 of them! Anonymous player said to the press that happenings outside the field (club’s financial problems) distract their attention. Players got the wages for February, but haven’t for March. However, Southend will be without striker Scott Spencer who suffered ligament damage at Monday, while midfielder Franck Moussa is serving the last of his three-game suspension.

From 11 home wins, Leeds 7 won with 2 or more goals margin. They desperately need a win. On the other hand, Southend are fighting for their lives and not an ideal opponent for keeping the minimal lead. I’m going for Leeds -1.25 ah, odd is 1.82 at Pinnacle.

More picks before 4pm kick-off. Stay tuned.
