Southend United v Wycombe Wanderers Preview, League Two Play Final, Saturday 23rd May 2015

Southend United head into this game having secured an impressive 4-2 aggregate victory in the semi final play offs against Stevenage and those two results will certainly have all the players in confident mood of gaining promotion to league one.

Wycombe Wanderers were also impressive winners of their semi final play off encounter which they won 5-3 on aggregate against Plymouth and this season has really been one to remember for both players and fans after the club looked set to slip out of the football league 12 months ago and their fans and players will also be confident of securing the right result come Saturday evening in the capital.

Southend United v Stevenage Team News

Southend United will be without the services of Adam Thompson for this game as he continues to receive treatment for injury. Michael Timlin is expected to start though having now recovered from a head injury picked up in the first leg semi final play off against Stevenage.

Wycombe Wanderers Team News:

Wycombe Wanderers look likely to still be without the services of Matt Ingram as he continues to receive treatment for a knee injury that kept him out of the both matches during the semi final play offs. Steven Craig is back in contention though having missed the last match with a hamstring injury and looks likely to be involved.

Southend United: W W L D W

Wycombe Wanderers: D L W W W

Both sides have done reasonably well during their last five matches played and there has been nothing to separate them with both having won 3, drawn 1 and lost 1 and it does seem to suggest that this game could possibly head into extra time or even penalties on Saturday evening to find the winner.

Southend United v Wycombe Wanderers Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

A lot of people are expecting this final to be a very close affair and based on what both clubs have done this season and their recent results being very similar it does seem likely and there could be every possibility that this match needs extra time and even a penatly shoot-out to determine which of these two clubs will be playing League One football next season.

However, in my opinion I like the chances of Wycombe Wanderers here as with the extra space that the Wembley pitch offers, I do feel that it will be more of an advantage to the Wycombe players as they do have a great passing game with plenty of pace down the flanks and at their current best odds on offer from Paddy Power, they do look the value play here in this one.

The average goals per game statistics are expecting this match to see at least a couple of goals scored and I would probably expect both teams to get on the score-sheet in this one, although I do just think that Wycombe have slightly the stronger squad and as such my Banker Prediction for this match is going to be for Wycombe Wanderers to Win.

My Saver is going to be for Paul Hayes to Score at Anytime as he is the current top goalscorer for Wycombe Wanderers this season and takes all the penalties so this looks a good back up plan at what I believe are excellent odds.
