Stevenage-v-Southend-United-Sky-Bet-League-2-Playoff-Semi-Final

The League Two play-off semi-finals are in full flow and the action is set to continue when these four hopeful sides battle it out again

This season’s League Two play-off semi-finals are in full flow and, after a heated opening two encounters, plenty of thrills are again expected in the race to gain promotion.

In the first leg clashes, Southend United rallied from a goal to secure a 1-1 draw with Stevenage, as Barry Corr’s header on the hour mark cancelled out Dean Parret’s opener, while Wycombe Wanderers claimed a 3-2 triumph over Plymouth Argyle at Home Park.

Stevenage are a best priced 10/3 with Bet365 to edge past their opposition on the road in the second leg, while Plymouth are 12/5 with Betfred to overcome a one-goal deficit on their travels and set up a Wembley final outing.

Wycombe v Plymouth
All four sides involved in this year’s race for play-off promotion to League One have been successful in play-off campaigns in the fourth tier of English football, making proceedings even more exciting ahead of these second leg match-ups.

The hosts’ top scorer Paul Hayes struck the winning goal at Home Park during the two team’s meeting last September and he is available at 6/1 with Ladbrokes to net last in this next clash as well.

Plymouth boss John Sheridan will be hoping his key attacking threat Reuben Reid can continue his rampant run of form, with the club’s highest scoring marksman this season having grabbed an impressive 20 goals so far. He is a 6/1 chance with Boylesports to open proceedings this time out.

Southend v Stevenage
The visitors are available at 7/4 with Coral to qualify for the final, having been held to a stalemate in the first leg encounter on home soil.

Southend’s leading sharpshooter this current campaign Charlie Lee is a 15/4 shot to get on the scoresheet again anytime in 90 minutes with Bet365, while first leg hero Corr is 13/8 with Bet Victor to net in consecutive games, having now racked up four in five against Stevenage.

Betting tip: Corr to score anytime in 90 minutes @ 13/8 with Bet Victor
