SOUTHEND United manager Sol Campbell will be wanting to avoid an unwanted club record tonight.

Never before has a new Blues boss kicked off his reign with five successive defeats.

But Campbell could become the first if the Shrimpers are beaten by AFC Wimbledon in the Trophy at Roots Hall this evening.

The former England international has been beaten by Ipswich Town, Sunderland, Portsmouth and Dover Athletic in his first four games.

Colin Murphy was the last Blues boss to lose his opening four games back in 1992.
