Big DC has eyes firmly on Southend!

Collins reflects on our 3-1 defeat to the Shrimpers early season and what we can expect from the regation fighting side.

"At the start of the season, nothing went right for us.

"We went down to Southend, got done 3-1 and it was a bad day all round.

"I was on the bench for that match but I was there in the changing room and the mood was very low - it was a low point for us all. We owe them one for that."

"They went to Birmingham and turned them over 2-1, so we know what they are capable of.

"They have beaten some of the top sides in the division, including ourselves, but we do not take any game lightly to be honest.

"They are fighting to stay in the Championship while we are trying to win promotion, so there is a lot at stake for both clubs tomorrow - we both want the points for different reasons.

"We are playing well at the moment and I am sure the fans will look at the league table and expect us to beat Southend easily, but we cannot think like that.

"If you do not put the work in, you will not get the results."
