We take a quick look at tomorrow's opponents

Bristol Rovers go into today's game looking to get their first three points on the road this season.

Rovers: Darrell Clarke's men will be looking to secure their second win of the season against Southend United. 

Team News: Rovers have a completely fit squad to pick from.

Darrell's View:”The only thing we can focus on is winning our game. We cannot control what the other teams do, we need to get all three points out of our game."

Opposition: Tomorrow's opponents Southend United currently sit in 16th position in the SkyBet League One table with three points from their three games so far this season. Phil Brown's men had a tricky start to their campaign with two defeats at the hands of Gillingham and Port Vale before a fantastic result beating Sheffield United 0-3 at Bramall Lane.  
Dangerman - Stephen McLaughlin: The Irish midfielder has been in fantastic form in front of goal so far this season scoring three goals in all competitions      
Last Time Out: The two sides met in the Johnstones Paint Trophy last season as John White's 11th minute strike was enough to see Phil Brown's side through to the next round.          

Tickets: Supporters can purchase tickets on the day for tomorrow's game.
