Sarfend have a better 11.
Isn’t Teddy Bishop in goal highly rated so much better than the car crash that is Liam Roberts atm. I always thought Daniel Bentley was a good talent (had a great game at Bescot in 15/16) and he’s done well since signing for Brentford.
Then you have Demetriou at RB who’s a complete different level to Devlin it’s fair to say. Don’t know much about rest of your defence tbh.
Upfront you have a proven league one scorer in Simon Cox. Midfield maybe seen better days, as you say Kightly is like Jarvis.
I remember from earlier in the season Southend had a sequence of winning one week and losing the next weekend and that went on for about 15 rounds. Sort of inconsistancy that drives a fan crazy…and then you wish it would start up again when you stop winning!
In normal circumstances this feels like a dire 1-1 to stop the rot game for both but that would practically relegate both teams so I can see the sort where it’s a draw last 10 minutes and then both teams just put 5 upfront to try to get a winner so it will be a pinball finish with no logic to things.
