Powell In Team Of The Week (30/1/18)
Southend United are represented in the latest Football League team of the week that has been selected after this week's action.
The performance by Southend United in the three two victory over Scunthorpe United at the weekend at Roots Hall was enough to earn them a place as manager of the side alongside the other most impressive performers in the Football League pyramid.
I think we'll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why Powell was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice - the FL blurb read.
'Powell`s Shrimpers` tenure began in entertaining fashion, as he watched his players score moments from time to beat Scunthorpe United 3-2 at Roots Hall. Michael Turner got the all-important third to send the Iron home empty-handed, and give Southend a first league win since Boxing Day.'
It's always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to Powell for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the points.
Craig MacGillivray (Shrewsbury Town), Dan Potts (Luton Town), Ronnie Henry (Stevenage), Matt Doherty (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Ryan Sessegnon (Fulham), David Worrall (Port Vale), Korey Smith (Bristol City), Jamie Devitt (Carlisle United), Marc Richards (Swindon Town), Coady McDonald (Wimbledon), Tom Eaves (Gillingham).
Manager - Chris Powell (Southend United).
