Southend United are represented in the latest Football League team of the week that has been selected after the Boxing Day festive action.

The performance by Simon Cox in the three nil victory over Wimbledon on Monday at Roots Hall was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other most impressive performers in the Football League pyramid.

I think we’ll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why Cox was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice – the FL blurb read.

‘Cox was at the double for Southend, who extended their unbeaten run to 11 games with a 3-0 win against AFC Wimbledon. The striker smashed home from a long throw and rounded off the scoring with a sublime chip, and only the crossbar prevented him from netting a hat-trick.’

It’s always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to Cox for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the three points.

Full Team:

Adam Davies (Barnsley), Scott Laird (Walsall), David Wheater (Bolton Wanderers), Jacob Bedeau (Bury), Luke Ayling (Leeds United), Billy Bodin (Bristol Rovers), Sam Hutchinson (Sheffield Wednesday), Gavin Massey (Leyton Orient), Simon Cox (Southend United), Ian Henderson (Rochdale), Lee Gregory (Millwall).

Manager – Paul Cook (Portsmouth).
