Southend United and Doncaster Rovers meet this afternoon in a SkyBet League One encounter.

Southend will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing home defeat to Walsall last weekend, a first defeat for new manager Chris Powell.

Doncaster were without a game last weekend due to the bad weather and with the teams closing in behind them in the relegation zone, Doncaster will be desperate to win and put some daylight between themselves and the bottom four.

SkyBet make Southend 5/4 favourites, Doncaster are 9/4 and it is 23/10 on the draw.

Southend`s leading goalscorer this season is defender Jason Demetriou.

Doncaster have had a problem this season defending set-pieces and Demetriou could benefit.

Demetriou is 17/2 to open the scoring.

Veteran Doncaster midfielder James Coppinger has fond memories of games against Southend, including a hat-trick in the League One Play-off semi-final in 2008.

Coppinger has netted five goals this season and he is 12/1 to score the first goal of the game.
