TEAM NEWS

Southend manager Phil Brown opted to field two different sides against Great Wakering Rovers on Tuesday and will no doubt continue to look at the trialists currently with the club aiming for a contract offer ahead of the National League campaign.

Simeon Akinola is currently isolating following a positive Coronavirus diagnosis whilst Ashley Nathaniel-George will be unavailable following an operation on his knee.

New signing Josh Coulson will be unavailable with a suspected fractured toe, fellow new signing Rhys Murphy may miss this one through injury but has trained in the last three days.
