Phil Brown's side will be searching for a reaction tonight after suffering a 1-0 defeat to Portsmouth last weekend.
Southend have beat MK Dons two times out of 10 meetings between the two sides, with Blues first victory being on 20th November 2009. Blues beat MK Dons 2-1 in League One. Can Phil Brown’s side put two past the Dons?
Blues have scored 10 goals when at home and have also scored the same amount when playing away this season. If Southend score tonight, then it will make Phil Brown’s side more successful on the road. Can Blues push the away tally up 11?
A game in hand
Southend are one of 10 clubs in League One this season that currently have one or more games in hand. If Blues win against MK Dons tonight they could be within three points of the play-offs. Will Blues secure a win tonight?
Last time out
The last time the two sides met at the Stadium MK was on 22nd October last season, the result ended 3-0 to Southend with Simon Cox scoring one and Anthony Wordsworth scoring two against the Dons. Can Cox get his name on the scoresheet this time round?
A change in the line up
Phil Brown spoke to the media following Blues defeat to Portsmouth last weekend, a defeat that ends Southend’s unbeaten run in November which dates back to 2009. Brown said “I’m looking for a reaction and I’m looking for a response. I said after the game I would be making changes, and I will.” Who will Brown choose in his starting XI tonight?
