A Physical Test In Terms Of The Aerial Bombardment

That's (the title) what Phil Brown feels Southend will be facing today when they take on Northampton at Roots Hall, as the Shrimpers look to maintain that unbeaten start.

Phil Brown told BBC Essex: 'We had a session on closing down the opposition and getting in their faces to stop them playing any quality balls into our channels or behind the centre-backs.

'We're going to get a physical test in terms of the aerial bombardment, we've got to be able to stand up and deal with it.

'The most important part id that first pass when we regain the ball. We have to play our game.

'It's a battle of tactical wits and having the bottle to get the ball down and play.'

Home advantage, for what its worth, is something Southend will be hoping can take them to a third straight league two win.

Northampton are a good side, they've found a win last weekend and will be looking to build on this with the last away win they actually secured coming at Roots Hall last season...
