Match Preview: Stevenage vs. Southend United

8 May 2015

A look ahead to the big game on Sunday, kick off 6.35pm.

The Lowdown...
It's been a great season for Stevenage, who finished a place below Southend in the table. 

After an inconsistent first half of the campaign, Graham Westley's side have only suffered five defeats since the turn of the year, suffering two defeats in their last 17 games, including the loss to Luton Town in their last game. 

The Officials...
Referee: Keith Stroud
Assistant Referees: Michael Denton and Paul Marsden
Fourth Officials: David Webb

They Said What?!...
Phil Brown: “Graham's a very clever man. They do play deep down and they have players that have been at a higher level and players that can win games and create problems. We have to be prepared for them at their stadium and at Roots Hall.”

Graham Westley: “We had a 4-4 aggregate over the two games, they beat us at theirs and we beat them at ours. They are a very good side, make no bones about it. I went to watch them at Bury the other week and they got a 1-0 victory that was full of defensive endeavour in the first half and then tactical brilliance in the second half.”
