Bet of the Day: Gillingham and Southend set for Tuesday stalemate
Pair set to meet again in midweek
The Checkatrade Trophy gets underway this week, and for Gillingham and Southend that means a second successive meeting at Priestfield.
The duo met on Saturday in League One, where both sides were eagerly hoping to make up for a poor start to the campaign.
With priorities lying elsewhere ahead of this EFL Trophy clash, and knowing that a draw leads straight to a penalty shootout, Coral’s Bet of the Day is Gillingham v Southend – Draw at 9/4.
Busy night for goalkeepers
This revamped format and the inclusion of Premier League youth teams has seen more sides make sizeable changes in this competition.
Even further down the pyramid, youngsters and fringe players get more of a chance, and while they’re out trying to impress, goals come flying in.
With that in mind, Both teams to Score appeals at 4/6.
Goals and more goals
No fewer than a mighty 31 group games last year saw four or more goals, as teams chopped and changed their line-ups.
With Gillingham and Southend each likely to focus on their league duties, and having just played each other, another high-scoring affair could be in line here.
