Aldershot vs Southend United Tips and Prediction
Aldershot, who is now in 18th place in the National League and three points above the relegation zone, is in a position where they need to be picking up points.
Last time out, they were soundly defeated by league-leading Wrexham with to goals from Paul Mullin and James Jones.
With the outcome, the Shots have now dropped their previous three league games after winning three straight matches against York City, Yeovil Town, and Dorking Wanderers.
Aldershot Town’s recent losses have raised defensive questions since they allowed 10 goals, which is a poor way to be ready to play Southend, a club wo have been able to see the back of the net in a minimum of two goals in about six gams out of seven.
While Gateshead defeated Southend in the National League, Southend will come into this match hot off that loss.
When Kamil Conteh’s long, low shot reached the bottom corner in the 52nd minute, Gateshead took the lead. Adam Campbell doubled the lead in the 72nd minute by chipping goalkeeper Collin Andeng. With a third goal four minutes later, Conor Carty gave his debut a memorable finish.
The Shrimpers’ 11-game league winning streak was stopped by the Heed, who moved up to 22nd in the standings while Southend remained in fifth. Dan Mooney managed to get the Blues one back, but it was only a consolation.
Despite losing to Bromley last weekend, the Essex team still leads that team by four points in eighth position, It will be difficult for the Blues to win automatic promotion this season because they are already 13 points behind league leaders Wrexham, but Southend has shown recently that they should be capable of earning a playoff spot.
After their disappointing loss to Gateshead, Southend will be eager to rebound, and we believe this is the ideal chance for them to do so.
Since Southend has a strong defensive record and the Shots have only won one of their past four home games, we believe Southend will win this game.
