Southend vs Millwall...
Blues are back on home soil this evening as they face Millwall at Roots Hall in their penultimate pre-season friendly – kick-off 7.30pm.
For Kevin Bond’s three summer signings – Brandon Goodship, Mark Milligan and Nathan Ralph – it will be their first taste of playing at Roots Hall and a chance to impress against Sky Bet Championship opposition.
Millwall kick off their new season at home to Preston North End on the 3rd August and come into the game on the back a 2-1 win over Gillingham.
The Lions also have past Blues players within their ranks in Ryan Leonard, who will be hoping to get some minutes at his former home, as well as having Adam Barrett in the backroom staff and Neil Harris as the man in charge.

Simon Cox, Timothee Dieng and Jason Demetriou will miss out but Stephen McLaughlin, Dru Yearwood and Harry Lennon both trained ahead of the clash with Millwall and are fit to take part.
Millwall’s new signings will all be looking to get some more game time in hope to impress their manager Neil Harris so they can earn starting spots in the Championship season.
Millwall have also recently signed Republic of Ireland U21 captain Jayson Molumby on loan from Brighton & Hove Albion which was the club’s sixth summer signing and he may be making his first ever appearance in a Millwall shirt.
