This is going to be a very tricky match, Southend are in fine form.  We need those 3 points.  

I'm going for a draw 1-1

Always the Wanderers pet- but I'm realistic enough to know their limitations

Marc Antoine Fortune, Simon Cox, Naughty Nile Ranger and now Frank Nouble - Southend are amassing a strong and experienced strikeforce so our defence will have their work cut out and I reckon it will come down to whether or not our strikers can do the business at the other end. Clough seems to have plateaud so unless he has an epiphany we may be dependent on Henry or Madine to come up with the goods. Seeing as they beat Dale recently I'm hoping for a single goal win but expect a draw.

Preview: Five talking points ahead of Southend United v Bolton Wanderers

1. First win of 2017?

Having twice battled Premier League Crystal Palace in the Emirates FA Cup in recent weeks, Wanderers will be going in search of their first win of 2017 when they take on Southend United this weekend.

Scoring a last-minute equaliser to earn a point away at Coventry City in their first outing of the calendar year, the shoe was on the other foot as the Whites fell to a late home defeat against Swindon Town last week.

Now looking to bounce against the Shrimpers having also seen their cup exploits ended in midweek, Bolton will be hungry to return to winning ways now they can focus fully on Sky Bet League One for the remainder of the season as they look to maintain their promotion charge.

2. Phil Brown
The Trotters will be locking horns with another familiar face on Saturday, having recently clashed with Sam Allardyce and Lee Chung-Yong, as they go head to head with Wanderers legend Phil Brown.

After leading the Shrimpers into the third tier via the play-offs in 2015, the Southend boss is forging another promotion push this season with his side currently sitting just one point outside of the Sky Bet League One top six.

Brown's side have lost just once since November, coming earlier this month at home to league leaders Sheffield United, while they have lost just three times at Roots Hall in the league all season.

With Brown no doubt eager to maintain this run as he looks to get one over on his former side, the scene is set for another pulsating encounter with Phil Parkinson's men needing to be at their best if they are to come out on top. 


3. James Henry
Cementing his place in the Whites' starting XI in recent weeks after extending his loan stint at Macron Stadium, James Henry has been in fine form since the turn of the year.

Scoring what could prove to be a crucial last-minute winner at home to Scunthorpe United on New Year's Eve, the winger also fired home an outstanding strike against Crystal Palace in midweek to give Bolton the lead.

Unfortunate not to have netted more having also hit the woodwork on numerous occasions, Henry looks set to be another key player for the Trotters this weekend.

4. Back-to-back away trips
After making a long midweek trip to Selhurst Park in midweek, Wanderers are back on the road again as they pay an even longer trip to Southend on Saturday.

The Whites were backed by nearly 1,000 fans in London, and having already sold over 500 tickets for their trip to Roots Hall as the Bolton fans continue to excel themselves.

Predominantly naming an unchanged starting XI during the season so far, Phil Parkinson previously rotated when the Trotters made their trip to Coventry City at the start of the month.

With the likes of Max Clayton, Derik Osede, Jamie Proctor and Chris Taylor hungry to impress, could the gaffer use this weekend's game as a chance to give the quarter to shine from the off following another quick turnaround?

5. Pay on the day
Tickets will be available on the day at Roots Hall. With a small increase in price, get down to Southend this weekend, be loud, be proud and back the boys!

Ref watch: Charles Breakspear to oversee Southend clash


Charles Breakspear will take charge of Wanderers’ trip to Southend United this weekend.

The Surrey-based official last oversaw the Whites when they travelled to Ipswich Town in February 2014.

Running the rule over 26 games so far this season, Mr Breakspear has dished out 104 yellow cards and five red cards.

Michael Webb and Ian Rathbone will run the line, while Sam Purkiss will be the fourth official.

Good luck to the boys. I'm off to London to the Carole King musical 'Beautiful'. 

Hopefully, it'll be a good day as well as night. (Its expensive drowning your sorrows in the West End)

Southend United's game against Bolton Wanderers in League One has been called off because of a frozen pitch.

Following the referee's inspection of the playing surface at Roots Hall, the match was postponed at 10:45 GMT.

The Shrimpers say covers and heaters were put in place on the pitch, but temperatures dipped to well below freezing in Essex overnight.

Southend are seventh in League One, one point outside the play-offs, and Bolton are third.

They should be fined for this.. a league one side should be able to maintain pitch standards, bet there are plenty of non league games going ahead

In my day we played on a concrete pitch,with a cannonball,and in bare feet,and still produced,in Billy 'no toes' Turpin, one of the finest wingers in our division.
Soft bastards.

TBF it was effing freezing in the East last night even at  7 o'clock when I played 5 a side on 4G (which is supposed to be all weather) and one of the lads went crashing into a post. Definitely an injury risk which is something we could do without with our limited squad. We'll play them soon enough.
