MARK Molesley says Southend United are in a confident mood ahead of tonight's clash with Forest Green Rovers at Roots Hall.

The Shrimpers beat Walsall 1-0 in their last outing.

And Molesley is now keen to build on that success. 

"We’re in a confident mood on the back of three points and we’ve got something to build on ourselves," said Molesley. 

"But it will be a tough challenge and Forest Green are a side we have the upmost respect for.

"They’re a very good side in possession and we’ve got to be at our best as we do every week."

Forest Green are currently fifth in the League Two table and have claimed 22 points from their first 13 games this season.
