Recent respective form guides
Bristol Rovers need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While Pirates have scored 7, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.
Southend Utd.'s away form is none too clever either, winning 2 of the last six, but losing the other 4. While the Shrimpers have hit 8 goals, 14 have hit the back of the wrong net.
Bristol Rvs. see themselves just below half way in the Coca-Cola League One, showing a record of 10 points from their 8 games played so far, Southend Utd. are just outside the promotion places, in 3rd, having taken 15 points from 8 games.
