Footymad preview History of the Southend United v Gillingham fixture

Southend United prepare to entertain Gillingham at Roots Hall at lunchtime on Tuesday, looking to continue an impressive record. The Shrimpers are clearly on top, having won 28 and lost only 7 of the 52 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Roots Hall was just last season, in September 2011, the Shrimpers carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a League Two match.
