Tobias Gourlay thinks Sol Campbell might finally have something to celebrate as Southend manager this lunchtime
Dover v Southend Sunday 12:00 (Live on BT Sport 1)
Oostende and REM drew 2-2 in Belgium yesterday. Our Over 2.5 Goals bet was a fourth straight winner and guarantees us a profit for the week.
We finish our shift closer to home. Today's first televised FA Cup game sees Sol Campbell's Southend heading even further south. A trip to National League Dover could be just the tonic for the struggling League One outfit.
Sitting 12th in the 24-team National League, Andy Hessenthaler's hosts have won just 2/10 league home games this term (W2-D3-L5). Since 2015, they are W0-D2-L2 at Crabble Athletic Ground in FA Cup.
The Shrimpers are hardly in stellar form themselves, which is why'll you get them as only narrow 2.56 favourites for this one. They've lost 14/17 since the start of the season, but there are a couple of signs that they're beginning to pick up. Home and away, they've scored in 9/11. On the road, they've recently gone W1-D1-L3.
For a club currently facing a showdown with the receivers (they'll be in court next month fighting a winding-up petition) a cup run could be just the thing. At an odds-against price, we'll back the visitors to win through against a side that's shown itself to be middle of the road at a lower level this season.
