Southend United boss Phil Brown brings his side to Bootham Crescent this weekend hoping for a third successive win.

“We’ve got to look to exploit what’s wrong up there” – Phil Brown

The Shrimpers have already accounted for Cheltenham Town (A 1-0) and Portsmouth (H 2-0) over the past week and their manager is now targeting a hat-trick of triumphs.

“We go up to York buoyed by the fact we’ve got two wins and two clean sheets under our belts,” Brown told Southend’s official website. “We know it’ll be a tough game, they have a number of players who are very capable of this level.

“The manager up there has put a side together that haven’t lost too many games but also haven’t won too many,” he added. “They’ve won one, drawn six and lost one. We’ve got to look to exploit what’s wrong up there.”

The contest could see York winger Anthony Straker coming up against his former club after moving to Bootham Crescent in the summer.

“It’ll be nice to see Strakes, he’s a good character and a good lad,” commented Brown. “If Strakes plays good luck to him but hopefully we can come out on top to make it a fantastic week for us.”
