Dean Morgan is a doubt for Chesterfield`s clash with Southend.

A groin injury forced the forward off midway through the second half of the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy tie at Sheffield Wednesday in midweek and he will be assessed.

Dwayne Mattis dropped back to centre-half again at Hillsborough but it remains to be seen whether he will stay in that position.

The midfielder could revert back to his usual role with Robert Page available again. Ian Breckin is another option at the back for boss John Sheridan.

Mark Allott could come back into the reckoning after a hamstring problem, while fellow midfielder Craig Clay will hope to make his first start for the club.

Ian Morris, an unused substitute against Crewe and Sheffield Wednesday, could get a run out after being sidelined since the opening day of the season.

Southend manager Paul Sturrock could include new loan signing Waide Fairhurst in his starting line-up.

Fairhurst has joined the Shrimpers on a one-month loan deal from Doncaster and could step straight in as cover for strikers Barry Corr and Blair Sturrock, who both missed Tuesday's Johnstone's Paint Trophy win at Barnet.

Sturrock junior is struggling with a lower back problem, while Irishman Corr has sustained a gluteus injury.

Matt Paterson, who struck twice at Underhill, Nathaniel Jarvis and Harry Crawford are all vying with Fairhurst for a place in the starting XI.

Bilel Mohsni begins a three-match ban following his dismissal in midweek, which came after a mass melee, so Graham Coughlan could come into central defence.

Sturrock's men are unbeaten in three League Two games, but come up against a Chesterfield side who are the leading scorers in the division this term.
