Blues Boss looks ahead to welcoming Millwall to Roots Hall this Saturday 17 September (3pm kick off)...Phil Brown is hoping Blues can avenge the result from the last time Southend met Millwall at Roots Hall and get their season back on track in the process.
The last time the Lions were in town last season, they left as 4-0 victors which Brown says hurt his players at the time.
The manager praised the team’s determination to bounce back from the recent setback at Scunthorpe United, and hopes that a good start on Saturday can give his team confidence to go on and win the game against Neil Harris’ side.
“We are coming up against a side that is full of confidence at this moment in time.
“They are going to come to Roots Hall and remember last season, but I also remember our changing room last season and how much pain and hurt that actually caused us when we got turned over by Millwall.
“I remember speaking to the players afterwards and saying that I hate seeing a local rival come to the club and go away happy, and that’s what we’ve got to work against on Saturday.
“Yes, they (Millwall) are playing with confidence and belief, but if we can get our noses in front that belief and confidence will come back to our group, and if that’s the case then we can go on to win the game and turn this season around, which is something that we’re trying to do.
“I’ve got a group of players here that are 100% behind the cause and are committed towards getting this thing right.”
