In the last match Southend’s season got up and running with an emphatic win at Sheffield United with the Blues coming away from Bramall Lane with a three-nil win.

Bristol Rovers visit tomorrow for a match Southend will be keen to use as one to build on that impressive midweek win.

The step up to League 1 has been a decent one for Bristol Rovers so far but they did suffer a midweek defeat against Bolton to the Pirates will be looking to get back on track at Roots Hall, we’ll of course not want that.

What will happen in this one though?
