Monday, Roots Hall, 7.45, live on Sky Sports
THERE is one English League game tonight and it looks difficult to call.
It's similar to Blackpool v Hull on Friday. I sat on the fence and took a draw and I'm going the same way at Southend v Crawley.
The League Two rivals set the pace at the start of the season but have been overhauled by the likes of Swindon and Cheltenham and in fact if Crawley don't wake up they could even miss out on a play-off spot.
Crawley lost at home to Torquay at the weekend and in recent weeks have also been beaten by Shrewsbury and Swindon. To be fair the live TV defeat at Shrewsbury was unlucky so despite four games without a win Steve Evans' men can't completely be written off.
They probably won't relish another trip to a top-six rival but Southend are also suffering. After two defeats to nil boss Paul Sturrock rung the changes at the weekend and got the response he needed with a 2-0 victory at Burton.
That doesn't give me enough confidence to back them at a best 6-4 with Betfred and Chandler. Crawley are 2-1 at Ladbrokes and BetVictor but I'm yet to be convinced they've recovered from selling their two top scorers Matt Tubbs and Tyrone Barnett so it's draw for me at 12-5 with BetVictor.
Neil Harris was one of the players drafted in by Luggy and the veteran former Millwall striker duly netted. He's likely to start tonight and is 7-1 at bet365 to score first and 2-1 at Ladbrokes, Coral and bet365 to net at any time.
