No Beard or Ollie and James and Gaffers up front so don't think we'll score too many to-day but one may do!!! Clarke-Salter back and on the bench.No back up strikers but then we don't really have any as guess Ellis must be injured?

Rovers playing some excellent football and deserve to be ahead at half time. Gaffers and James playing well. Apart from 5 mins before half time when sarfend made a double substitution we've been in total control. Looks a good crowd here too.

Overall deserved the win. First half excellent at times. Second sitting too deep at times but apart from one great save from Lumley and a bad miss from Ranger, we looked fairly comfortable in defence. Ten more points to beat Trollope's 63 points in the second season in League One. That would be a real achievement given where we were just two years ago.

A very different second half with lots of defending to be done and done it was. Thought our midfield went missing a bit and just let Southend keep the ball. But when we attacked we looked good and Luke James very unlucky not to score.
