1pt Southend to beat Leicester in League one, 11/5 B365 or 21/10 Blue Square (Best price Betfair) (Saturday 18th April 3pm ko)

Southend are one of the most in form teams in the country at the moment with four wins from their last five and twelve wins from their last sixteen. This fantastic run has taken them to within touching distance of the play offs. A win against Leicester tomorrow and other results going their way, could see the Shrimpers just two points from a playoff spot by tea time. They had a poor spell mid way through the season but this was the result of a crippling injury list. They have a strong squad to choose from now and have benefited from a couple of useful loan signings. Dorian Dervite has come in from Tottenham and struck up a strong partnership with Peter Clarke at the back. Their first thirteen games together resulted in ten wins and seven clean sheets. At the other end of the pitch, Theo Robinson has had a big impact since arriving on loan from Watford, scoring seven times. With Francis Laurent, Lee Barnard and Dougie Freedman also fighting for places, manager Steve Tilson has a wealth of options in attack.

Leicester can achieve promotion tomorrow with just a draw but they have been far from convincing in recent weeks. They picked up six points over Easter but laboured away at bottom club Hereford and needed a 90th minute winner to beat Leeds. Before that, Leicester had one just two of their last eight failing to beat other promotion hopefuls MK Dons, Peterborough and Tranmere along the way. There is every chance that the weight of expectation could be getting to them.

Southend boss Steve Tilson was in confident mood before the game and keen to spoil the party:

“There is nothing worse than watching another side celebrate on your own patch and hopefully that won’t happen”.
Southend have beaten promotion challengers Peterborough and Scunthorpe during their charge to the play offs, and look a value price at over 2/1 to repeat the trick in front of a bumper home crowd. Failure to take all three points could all but end their play off dream.
Minimum price to take – 9/5
