Southend looked the better side in the draw(1-1) at Stevenage in the first leg. The Shrimpers have lost just one of their last 15 home games. They were also bang in form at the end of the regular season, winning seven of their last eight games played and they produced a phenomenal eight clean sheets in their last nine played. Remarkable stuff from them and they are on a five match stretch on home soil without having conceded a goal. Remarkably, they have banked 13 clean sheets in their last fifteen played in all competition at Roots Hall.
Southend are brilliant in defence at home, so i expect a low-scoring affair.
