Southend United v Blackpool

League One
Sat 17th Nov 2018 - KO 15:00
Roots Hall Stadium

Southend will have midfielder Luke Hyam in contention again for the Sky Bet League One match against Blackpool.

Hyam made his long-awaited return from an ankle injury in the midweek Checkatrade Trophy win over Southampton Under-21s, so is expected to feature again.

Southend reported no fresh injury problems, but manager Chris Powell has a depleted squad, with centre-back Harry Lennon not expected to be available until the new year after suffering a fractured leg. Summer signing Sam Barratt is out for the season with a serious knee injury, along with left-back Ben Coker, midfielder Lewis Gard and forward Tom Hopper.

Blackpool have a near fully fit squad to take down to Essex.Manager Terry McPhillips confirmed there were no fresh injury concerns following the Checkatrade Trophy win over Accrington on Tuesday night.

On-loan Rangers midfielder Joe Dodoo scored twice to add to his goal in the FA Cup tie against Exeter, so will be hoping to retain a place in the starting XI.Club captain Jimmy Ryan continues his recovery from knee surgery, while forward Max Clayton is also not yet back in full training.

I will have to dress up warm for this one, cold easterly set to be blowing come Saturday,

Blackpool 3-0.

‍We never seem to do well at Roots Hall. I do recall us winning 4-2 once but could be dreaming that.

‍ive seen us win 3-0 there, I think Ritchie Wellens got a 2 or 3. Thinking about it, I’ve never seen us lose there and I’ve visited on four occasions.

Keep warm Whits !!! Really wish I could be there for this but house hunting as sold house. Remember talking to Chris about this in the pub :D If we don't buy we will be living in a tent!

Hope Pool get a victory been there a few times - haven't seen us win

Southend 1 Blackpool 2

‍Should read 242 Pool fans, due to the horrendous traffic both in Kent and Essex and the journey taking exactly 3 1/2 hours (should be no longer than 1 1/2 hrs] i arrived ticket less at 3.40 asked the only steward on duty outside if I could get in and was politely told the ticket booth for £23 quid or £20 to me, It will go to the club he said, yes I said I am sure,  so without a ticket I would not have been officially counted.

So with just five minutes plus 4 mins of added time to see the first half out, nothing to report   other than  I learnt we were one up, I took a look around the North stand to see if there were any faces I could recognise.

Second half and no way did we look as though we were going to lose this match even after they scored which came out of the blue, most of the chances fell to Blackpool, one shot hit the underside of the bar and could have just about gone anywhere, pity it wasn't the net, the Fonz with the ball in the area hesitated if he had shot instead of taking one more pace forward he would have scored it was that close and again the Fonz later in the second half only had to knock it in but somehow managed to miss cue it.

Of course it is easy standing just behind the goal to find fault, I love the guy to bits really and have to say having seen them play three times this season we as fans are really missing some entertaining stuff, they play their hearts out, the team obviously are enjoying their game under the manager and a nice touch at the end of the game when several players came over to sign autographs and speak with fans.

It could and should be so much different

‍How many of them waved to Mike?

Edit.... Did any of the non white players wave to Mike?

Edit....... With more than 2 fingers?
