MARK Molesley feels Southend United are facing one of the strongest teams in League Two tomorrow.

Cheltenham made the play-offs last season and are fifth in the current standings having taken nine points from their first five games.

And Molesley is certain the Robins will be tough to beat at Roots Hall

“This league throws out a difficult challenge every week, whoever you’re playing,” said the Blues boss.

“Cheltenham went very close to promotion last year and they have a very good group of players there and a good way of playing.

“From our own research and analysis they’re definitely one of the strongest teams in the league.

“But we have to make sure we’re ready for the challenge.”
