There is probably not a single team in the entire League that has as good a recent record against any other team as ours against Hereford. Our ten match record reads "Played 10 Won 10 Goals For 20 Goals Against 2". Combine that with a referee we have never lost with and we must surely have the away banker of the season !

Man in charge will be second year referee Brendan Malone from Salisbury refereeing his fifth Southend match.

His most recent Southend match was this season's home match against an inept Port Vale side when a 3-0 victory gave us our first home League win for a couple of months. They had one sent off and a couple of yellows with just Benyon cautioned for us.

He was in charge of the "dead" match, our fourth game against Macclesfield last season. Previously he was a late replacement for the Gillingham home game also last season (2-2, 5 yellows, 4 theirs, 1 ours) and, more memorably, before that he refereed the abandoned match at Cheltenham and the rather more successful re-arranged fixture back in December. He cautioned Barry Corr for time wasting right at the end.

His card count is a little above average this season with 81 yellows and 5 reds from 25 matches although his last 5 matches have produced a very low 7 yellows only. His Championship appointments seem to have dried up since the turn of the year.

The Assistants are Derek Eaton from Tewkesbury and Adam Hopkins who works for the Devon FA and has a sportswear shop in Plymouth. Fourth official is Andy Hendly fom Halesowen in the West Midlands.

That's the kiss of death then!
