A trip to the Seaside

So new manager, new hope and a new ground for some of our newer fans. The footballing world will expect a heavy defeat for the Saddlers, but can we buck the trend..........

Vital Quotes:

Walsalls manager Kevan Broadhurst says he faces a baptism of fire, and his not wrong.

Southend United Team News:

Hat trick hero Freddy Eastwood is suspended whilst Wayne Gray is out with a hamstring injury. Mark Bentley will face a late fitness test whilst skipper Kevin Maher will play with a broken nose.

Player to watch: Shaun Goater

With Freddy Eastwood missing the Southend faithful will be hoping to feed the goat so he will score, Walsall's defence need to keep the goat tied up though!

Walsall Team News:

Paul Delvin is suspended and Westwood and Wrack still out. Injured duo Mads Timm and Danny Fox are rated 50/50 and will face late tests

Player to watch: Andy Oakes

A lot of Walsalls hopes of survival will rest on the goalkeepers shoulders. After mixed performances including class saves and poor punches, Saddlers fans hope Andy finds the missing confidence and form sooner rather than later.

Match Facts & Stats

The return fixture at Bescot ended all square with litle between the two teams. On that day on one would have predicted the paths these two teams would take throughout the remainder of the season.

Match Prediction:

I can't see past a home win for Southend

Next Fixtures:

Bournemouth at the Bescot next saturday, another must win game
