A draw bides them time but rather waiting to see how Dave Webb gets on for another month or two, they are concerned that the unthinkable may happen.
Co-incidentally, two days before the replay, suddenly a deal with Collymore is in the offing. Will this give them that boost they need before the match and what capacity will Collymore be involved in at this stage.
All the actions and timing from Wignall’s sacking just before the first Canvey game, the two week caretaker role of Webb, to the possible involvement of Collymore just admits total desperation by the Southend Board that they might get beaten by Canvey Island. Now the event is live on telly, it only adds for total embarrassment to be complete. I cannot think of a time that Southend would have been lower if they lose to Canvey and are in the relegation zone for the conference.
With or without Collymore, let’s have a go at them boys. An early goal for us would be interesting to see how they react and what they are made of and we have shown what character we have by coming back.
