Southend to visit the ProKit

There is an addition to Blues’ pre-season fixture list, with Southend United expected to bring a strong side to the ProKit UK Stadium on Wednesday July 25, kick-off 7.45pm.

With their game against Leyton Orient rescheduled, the Shrimpers should prove tough opponents for Adam Flint’s new-look side.

A decent performance from Blues couldn’t prevent a full Southend first team leaving the ProKit UK Stadium with a 4-0 win when we met last season. The Shrimpers scored twice in each half, with their final two goals coming late in the game, to wrap up a comfortable victory.
