Published Add your comment

Southend's injury crisis is easing ahead of the match against Aldershot.

Boss Paul Sturrock had 10 players sidelined for the trip to Stockport, which ended in defeat, but the Shrimpers welcome back 18-goal striker Barry Corr for the visit of the Shots.

French defender Miguel Comminges is back in training after a knee injury but the game will come too soon for Bilel Mohsni (ankle).

Kane Ferdinand is also in line for a return after missing the trip to Edgeley Park due to an international call-up.

Sturrock revealed that Peter Gilbert had been playing with a hernia and he may be rested in preparation for next season.

Lee Sawyer also has an ankle problem which may require an operation, so he will miss out.

Aldershot boss Dean Holdsworth has no fresh injury concerns.

Striker Damian Spencer was handed his first start in five months against Accrington last weekend after fully recovering from a knee injury and he could keep his place.

Alex Rodman has made his comeback from a calf injury while fellow winger Jermaine McGlashan is struggling with an ongoing shin splints problem but is available.

Youth-team graduate Adam Mekki will be included in the squad again.

Forward Jack Randall broke his leg while on loan at Didcot Town recently and is a long-term absentee.

Veteran left-back Jamie Vincent has left due to a lack of first-team opportunities.
