Ahead of tomorrow’s clash between Southend United and Wycombe Wanderers here some pre-match comments from the men in charge of the Shrimpers and the Blues.


Both sides won their last game and both managers are keen to build on that success.


Blues boss Gary Waddock told Chairboys Player: “We want to back up the result against Bury with another good result on Saturday. I went to their game on Tuesday evening and Southend played extremely well so it’s going to be a tough game again.”

“They’ve gone to Cheltenham – who are in good form – and they’ve put on a performance and got a result. They showed a lot of energy in the game so it’s going to be a tough one.”

“Our away form has been good and results have been good so if we can pick up some kind of result on Saturday going into this busy period we’ll be delighted with that. Every game we go into we want to win. We want to pick-up three points whether it’s home or away.”


Shrimpers’ manager Paul Sturrock wants his side to improve their home record.

“Our away form is quite reasonable so if we can keep that going and improve our home form then I think we will really start to move up,” he told his club’s official website.

“Hopefully the win at Cheltenham can be the platform we needed to build on and we can get another good result against Wycombe.”

“Wycombe are a very difficult side to play against. They are well organised and in the boy Ainsworth they have a very dangerous player. It will be a hard game but we want to go and get another good result,” he said.
