Southend Game 12Jan 2013

Copied with with thanks from Exeweb.

City look to build on an impressive start to 2013 by trying to secure a first home win since the start of November. With Jamie Cureton sitting out the second match of his suspension, Paul Tisdale may look to keep to the somewhat settled squad by naming an unchanged first XI, even though Tom Doherty was withdrawn at half-time at York and Kevin Amankwaah played a key role in ensuring City’s victory at Bootham Crescent. Two names could also come into the mix – new signing Myles Anderson and Jake Gosling, who has returned from a successful loan spell at Dorchester that saw him earn instant City hero status by scoring the goal that knocked out those green chaps from down the A38 from the FA Cup!

One could be forgiven for thinking that Southend have bigger fish to fry currently than a visit to sunny Devon. Paul Sturrock’s side faces an FA Cup replay at Brentford on Tuesday night that would see the winners host Chelsea, while the Tuesday just gone saw the Shrimpers progress to the Southern Final of the JPT with a penalties win over Oxford that leaves them two matches from Wembley. However, after a stunning run that saw them go unbeaten for more than two months they have lost their last two league matches to lie just behind City in 6th place, so Sturrock will be hoping to capitalise on City’s recent home malaise to get their league season back on track. Key to their fortunes this season have been Gavin Tomlin (14 goals) and Watford loanee Britt Assombalonga (12), but City will also know only too well the threat of former striker (sadly more with his fists than his feet during his season at City!) Barry Corr, who has battled injury to hit a rich vein of form and has seven goals to his name.

Inevitably Corr got himself on the scoresheet when the sides met at Roots Hall back in September, equalising Scot Bennett’s strike before well-travelled striker Freddy Eastwood broke City’s hearts with a late winner. Southend is the side City have played the most in league matches, and it is the Shrimpers who hold a marginal lead in the head-to-head with 41 wins to City’s 38 in Football League matches (34 draws), although City haven’t lost at home to Southend since November 1999.

  1. Hi are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get
    started and set up my own. Do you require any coding knowledge to make your own blog?
    Any help would be really appreciated!

  2. Again there are many internet marketing reviews which are
    scams. While you are paying for their services,
    it is important to realize that they are specialists in their field and not just
    paying for their services, but also knowledge. This means
    that even if the a CRO expert delivers a meager 20% improvement in conversion rate, you could well see ROI
    exceed 300% or more in just the first year.

  3. Excellent post however I waas wondering if you could write
    a litte more on tthis subject? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a
    little bit further. Thank you!

  4. During an interview, composer Lalo Schifrin revealed
    that Bruce often trained to the “Mission Impossible” TV Show soundtrack.
    As the title of this article indicates, we have to focus
    on more details about the BEST self defense items. Ninja nunchaku are two sticks connected by a
    rope or chain.

  5. My spouse and I stumbled over here coming from a different web page
    and thought I should check things out. I like what
    I see so i am just following you. Look forward to
    exploring your web page yet again.
