To quote an old cliche, this is a bit like buses in Southend, you don't see one for ages and then three come along at once. And the first one is Coventry at Roots Hall.
Once again we are down to bare, mostly young, bones and it will be interesting to see which of our youngsters get a start on Saturday and whether Oxley's back will have recovered sufficiently for him to play or whether we bring in an emergency keeper (if we are allowed). You never know, there may even be sightings of Osadebe and Vassell getting out of an unmarked car in Roots Hall car park!
One thing is for certain, it's never dull watching Southend Utd. The lads are going to need our support again this weekend, not because we have even a glimmer of a hope of FL1 survival, but because we are now building the nuculeus of our team for next season. So, select your starting eleven, predict the result and come up with all the reasons that Hutch and Goodship don't start, or maybe, why they will this time.
By the way, Storm Dennis should be in full swing for kick off time with wind speeds of up to 45mph, just saying.
