Rotherham United make the long journey to Southend tonight to take on a side who are flying high in third place in League Two but who have only won two of their last six games. Meanwhile the Millers, who didn't have a game last weekend, have lost their last three games, not winning since the start of the year against Bradford at Don Valley.
Graham Coughlan - player/coach - Lack of professionalism against Plymouth cost us last weekend. I went to watch Rotherham a couple of weeks ago at Dagenham and it was similar to our game with Plymouth where they should have been out of sight by half-time. They will certainly be looking to come here and get three points and we are up there to be shot at. Teams will come and will want to win and say we are better than them. We are third in the table but that's because others have played less games than us and when they've caught up there will be three or four teams above us who we have to aim to catch. I still believe in these boys and I'm sure they believe in themselves and I'm still pretty confident but this is a massive weekend and I'm expecting a response and reaction and am confident that the boys will give us that.
Paul Sturrock - Rotherham will be tough opposition for us tonight. I watched them recently at Dagenham and I know they will be dangerous
Paul Sturrock was livid with his players after losing a two-nil lead last weekend to Plymouth Argyle and could make changes for this evenings clash. Kane Ferdinand could come backand so could Jack Sampson who should have got over a back problem. Neil Harris and Elliot Benyon will be pushing for re-calls while Ryan Leonard, Barry Corr, Harry Crawford and Lee Sawyer are all out injured. Mark Phillips will have a late fitness test on a groin strain
Much travelled striker who tops the Shrimpers scoring so far this season
Rotherham United could welcome back skipper Ryan Cresswell and Johnny Mullins to the team, but whether they will start or be on the bench is yet unclear. Latest loan signing, Shaun Harrad is set to start as is Keiron Cadogan who made is debut in the last game against Dagenham. Defender Michael Raynes is suspended and Gareth Evans won't play due to a back injury.
Will want to score against his former club
Iain Williamson from Berkshire
The Millers are due to play at Don Valley on Tuesday evening (14th February) when Accrington Stanley will be the visitors
