Jim Happy With Chelsea or Southend

Boss Jim Magilton says he's not bothered whether the Blues face Chelsea or Southend in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday, 24th January. The Shrimpers take on the former Premier League champions in their third round replay this evening (ITV1 8pm).
Magilton told the club site: "It's a great fourth round draw for us whatever the result tonight.
"Southend did very well to get a draw at Stamford Bridge and I'm sure they are relishing the replay. It will be a nice money-spinner for them and if they produce another upset, then we will have a derby to look forward to in the next round.
"Obviously, the prospect of facing Chelsea has its own attractions as well. As a manager, I want to pit my wits against the best in the business and Phil Scolari clearly falls into that category.
"For my players, it will give them a taste of what they could have every week in the Premier League and it will also give us an indication of where we are as a team."
Elsewhere, Norwich City have sacked manager Glenn Roeder in the wake of last night's FA Cup defeat to Charlton, recent Town loanee Darren Ambrose having netted the game's only goal.
