Oppositions View Vol 1 - Southend United
What would you say your current form has been like?

Very poor, 1 win in 13 I think = although we did take Chelsea to a draw at Stamford Bridge during that time, and hold them at 1-0 up for over half an hour in the FA Cup 3rd round replay.

Which players in your opinion will be the biggest threat to the Gas?

Barrett because of the 'ex' connection, probably Robinson or perhaps Clarke

Do you have any key players that will be missing from the game?

Yes - 2 broken legs, 1 thigh injury, 1 hamstring, 1 back, 1 groin and 1 suspension. 5 of those are strikers.

What were your expectations at the beginning of the season? Are these going to be achieved or have you changed your expectations?

Play offs or just outside, highly unlikely but you never know! Tilson made inspired loan signings this time last year, perhaps he can do the same this year.

Have you made any new signings in recent weeks?

Only Theo Robinson from Watford atm on loan, hopefully that might change before we play you

What are your strengths/weaknesses?

Bit low on strengths just now! Weaknesses are easy - no players, all either injured or suspended!

Finally what is your score prediction for the game?

Depends what happens with personnel. It's a must win for us, I expect our 'hard men' to take it upon themselves that this happens at any cost, so I will go for a 2-1 win to us.
