POWELL THROUGH TO CHECKATRADE LAST 16

Southend United boss Chris Powell has guided his side through to the Checkatrade Trophy Southern Section Round Three, following a 4-2 penalty shootout victory over Luton Town, last Wednesday.

Powell’s men will now face League 1 leaders Portsmouth at home, with the tie to be played week commencing January 7. Southend are currently 15th in the League 1 table, suffering from a raft of long-term injuries, but despite that Powell was nominated for League 1 Manager of the Month for October.
