Tilson eyes Leeds revenge
17 Aug 2007 - 14:36:09
Southend manager Steve Tilson is hoping to gain some revenge on Leeds United after claiming last season's draw with the West Yorkshire club was one of the main reasons for the Shimpers' relegation.
Tilson's side face Leeds on Saturday in a battle of two clubs who were playing in the Championship last season.
But having seen Leeds fight back to hold Southend to a 1-1 draw late last season, Tilson is looking to dish out some retribution.
"It was disappointing that day really. (Leeds striker David) Healy scored right at the death and that was probably the catalyst for us going on to get relegated," he told the club's official website.
"It would be nice to get one over on them and get going.
"I am a Leeds fan, but I want to go there and get a result if we can do that it takes us nicely into the Millwall match."
