It has been seldom in recent games that Southend United have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that Southend United have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, shipping 10 goals during that time. That sort of pattern won’t necessarily follow through here, of course.
Following on from tasting defeat last time out to Solihull Moors in National League competition, AFC Fylde and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
The only name on the scoresheet from AFC Fylde was Emeka Obi (8'). Kade Craig (34') and Josh Kelly (44') scored for Solihull Moors.
