So here we are the fifth home game of Chris Powell's return and time in charge at the Mighty Shrimpers.

It is now time for ALL of us to get behind him and the team whether you are at Roots Hall, listening on the radio, or watching on ifollow, and make that famous "Roots Hall Roar".

Chris Powell's 5th Southend United Home Team

Oxley, Demetriou, Turner, Ferdinand, Coker (C), McLaughlin, Yearwood, Wright, Kightly, Cox, Fortune

Subs: Bishop, Kyprianou, Timlin, Wordsworth, Mantom, Harrison, Ladapo


The Roots Hall pitch is ready for action at 3.00pm Saturday 10th March, especially after the state it was in after all the snow at last Saturday’s home game against Walsall, but it has been very heavily sanded in places.

Chris Powell’s current home record

Won 3
Drawn 0
Lost 1
Goals scored 9
Goals conceded 7
3 changes and Mantom on the bench, he is alive!
Surprised Timlin's been dropped. He was poor last week, but had been fantastic in every other game under Powell.

On the other hand it's a great chance for Wright in his preferred position. Let's hope he takes it!
