Lay over 2.5 goals (Southend v Lincoln) LAST week's FA Cup final at the Millennium Stadium ended in stalemate and goals may not be on the menu at the Cardiff venue for today's League Two play-off final between Southend and Lincoln, writes Mark Langdon. A lay of more than 2.5 goals, or backing under 2.5 if that represents better value for money when there is more liquidation on the exchanges nearer kick-off, wouldSouthend v Lincoln Back & lay prices Back Lay BFAIR BDAQ BFAIR BDAQ Under 2.5 goals 1.61 1.62 1.63 1.66 Over 2.5 goals 2.58 2.52 2.64 2.61 Betfair & Betdaq taken at 5.20pm last night, commission not taken into account.seem to be the best play of the day. Southend and Lincoln have already played twice this term and both games ended in 1-1 draws. Those results are not surprising, considering how closely matched the pair are, and nerves are sure to play a big part on such an occasion.
Lincoln get most of their success from playing a long-ball game. However, Southend are ideally equipped to deal with the direct approach through burly centre-backs Adam Barrett and the vastly experienced Spencer Prior.
The Us will rely on Freddy Eastwood for their goals but Lincoln kept 19 clean sheets in the regular season, which was second only to Rochdale in League Two.
