So deadline passed quietly at The Hall. I think most were just happy to hold on to our key assets to be honest.

Oxford are the visitors tonight and they are on a decent run of form as well. Since we beat them 2-0 at the Kassam on NY Day, they have won 4, drawn 1 and lost 1 of their last 6 games.

Constable & Craddock are the one's to watch with 23 goals between them already this season. Col Ewe loanee Simon Hackney could also prove a handful on the wing, if he starts.

Oxford currently sit 9th, just 1 point from the Play-off spots. A win for Southend tonight though would see us leapfrog our opponents.

But, make no mistake, this is going to be a very tough game. We will need to be at our best to turn them over I feel. Certainly better than the performance at Barnet anyway.

By all accounts Mohsni is carrying another knock so may not make it. Morris also is 50/50, so Evans may continue to deputise between the sticks.

Get behind the lads right from the off tonight people. This glut of home games in quick succession will shape the rest of our season. Tonight and Saturday are key to any hopes of the "P" & "O" words.

Let's hope the attendance is majorly improved on last Tuesday's worrying turnout.
