Match Preview

Attacking headache for Sturrock Manager Paul Sturrock faces an attacking dilemma for Southend`s opening game of the season at home to Hereford. Last season`s top scorers Barry Corr (knee) and Blair Sturrock (ankle) are only just starting their pre-season programmes and are around three weeks away from being involved. New signing Liam Dickinson (ankle) played an hour of last weekend's goalless friendly against Canvey Island as he also builds up his match fitness and Sturrock must decide whether the striker is ready for action, with a bench role most likely. However, one man who will definitely start in attack is Neil Harris, who clinched a move to his boyhood club from Millwall earlier this summer. Defender-turned-attacker Bilel Mohsni is another option. Sturrock also admits he will have to decide whether Kane Ferdinand is ready to start against the Bulls at Roots Hall. The promising young midfielder, who was the subject of a rejected bid from Peterborough earlier this summer, has not featured for the Shrimpers during pre-season due to his involvement with the Republic of Ireland at the Under-19s European Championship. Hereford are without Michael Townsend and Nicky Featherstone. Defender Townsend starts a two-match suspension having been sent off in the 1-1 draw at Macclesfield on the final day of last season. Midfielder Featherstone, meanwhile, misses out with a foot injury although it is not as bad as first feared and the former Hull man is likely to return to action in a week`s time. Otherwise, manager Jamie Pitman is at full-strength for the Roots Hall encounter. Striker Delroy Facey is likely to make his competitive Bulls debut following a summer switch from Lincoln. Hereford must rewrite the history books if they are to enjoy a winning start to the season having lost each of their previous nine meetings with Southend, their last success coming back in 1986.

Match Report

Mohsni downs Bulls Bilel Mohsni`s early goal earned Southend a deserved 1-0 victory over Hereford. The Shrimpers took the lead with their first attack after 13 minutes when Ryan Hall's cross fell to Mohsni, who headed in from close range. The same combination almost doubled Southend's lead after 28 minutes but this time Mohsni's header was well saved by Adam Bartlett. Southend's Jemal Johnson should have extended the home side's lead two minutes before the break but skewed his left-foot shot wide. Debutant Neil Harris almost put Southend further ahead seconds into the second half but his header from Hall's cross was tipped over the bar by Bartlett. Hereford's first effort came on the hour mark but James McQuilkin's free-kick was blocked by Hall. Despite their dominance, Southend almost conceded 15 minutes before the end when Joe Colbeck unleashed a shot from 12 yards but a crucial block from Luke Prosser thwarted the Bulls. Mohsni almost added a second in the last two minutes but he headed straight at Bartlett.
