Recent respective form guides

Southend United need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While the Shrimpers have scored 7, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Macclesfield's away form is none too clever either, collecting 1 win and 3 draws from the last six played. While the The Silkmen have hit 7 goals, 13 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Southend Utd. find themselves struggling down in 16th position in the league having picked up 30 points from their 24 matches. Macclesfield are currently lying in 19th place in Npower League Two having mustered a points tally of 27 from their 23 matches played.
