Football Under The Roots Hall Floodlights Returns This Tuesday

FOOTBALL under the Roots Hall floodlights returns tomorrow evening as The Shrimpers welcome Aldershot Town to Roots Hall in The National League.

Southend fell to a 3-1 away defeat on Saturday afternoon away at F.C. Halifax Town and following Phil Brown’s comments regarding their poor performance, the Essex-based side will be expected to show a major improvement in front of their supporters for the visit of Aldershot.

Abu Ogogo will not be available for this fixture as the player is recovering from a hamstring injury picked up against Stockport County a few weeks ago.

Goalkeeper Steve Arnold missed the Halifax encounter following a dislocated finger which happened on Wednesday in training but It remains to be seen if the shot-stopper will be available for the visit of Aldershot on Tuesday night.
