Bristol Rovers lost heavy, 4-0 on travel to Hartlepool. Bradley Walker was very instrumental as hosts deservedly carried the day by been 4 times better unreplied, marking boss John Ward’s heaviest defeat since taking over as manager; he admitted his lads played poorly but he has been impressed with the way they have handled themselves on the training pitch this week. An urgent step to avoid a recurrence will be employed at home as they now welcome 8th placed Southend who are currently eyeing the promotion play-off they are just two points away from. Bristol at home stands strong with a 9-5-4 but ironically are the league’s poorest travelers. A win today could potentially give them a 5-position limp on the table. They head into this clash with no injury worry, but rather with the boost that Alefe Santos (17/1), Chris Beardsley (Mf 18/1) and Tom Lockyer (Df 32/1) have all signed a new deal with the club.



Southend know no win in last 12 matches overall but have got the incentive of moving into the play-off spot with a win today. They are coming from a 0-0 welcoming Bury in a match that greeted little attempts in fornt of the goal as there was just one attempt on goal from Southend defender John Egan late header. Manager Phil Brown hinted there has to be an improvement in the attack to be able to continue earning fan’s support while although commending his defence lines. Main striker and highest goal-scorer Barry Corr (37/7) is suspended while Luke Prosser (Df 23/3) and Adam Thompson (Df 16/0) return from injury.



Last time at home, Azeez Adebayo’s brilliance robbed off Burton’s 3-points as they lost 2-1. Bristol have been strong at home where they’ve won their previous three matches. For today’s clash, both teams should be seeking a win adding that Southend cannot play draw forever; however both teams should be low on confidence at the moment but going by home form, hosts seems likely to bounce back to positive results in front of their home fans.

Bristo record at home vs top half of d table,P10... w4 d4 l2 with average of 1.67 point per game also goal diff of + 5
while southend at away vs bottom half, P11...w3 d2 l6 with average of 1point per game also goal diff. of -3

My Final verdict:

I see a close game here, but since Bristol only fail twice at home this season to score goal against opposition like this at @ home, also southend fail to score once at away against opposition of this nature (although they only scored twice in in one of those games but always manage to score 1 at every game)...

If there will be winner here i s

@Johnaz... I'm working on adding a personal link very soon. I do well to make research and follow my best judgement. As advised, a draw cover is worthy for the pick so I decided a half loss in the less-likely event of draw (imo). @lawal: changed phone and lost your number... but I'm positive I'll soon find it. At most I'll send you a pm on nb. Welcome back to the 'green'land my friend :-)
