Stevenage boss Graham Westley will welcome Jon Ashton back into the squad to face Southend at the Lamex Stadium.

The 28-year-old defender missed the 1-0 defeat at Accrington at the weekend through suspension after picking up his fifth booking of the season in the FA Cup replay win against MK Dons.

Ashton is likely to go straight back into the starting line-up.

Other changes are on the cards following Saturday's defeat so Scott Laird, Ben May, Stacy Long and David Bridges, who were all rested on Saturday after playing 120 minutes against the Dons, could find themselves back in the starting line up.

Lee Boylan (calf) and Darren Murphy (ankle) remain long-term absentees.

Southend boss Paul Sturrock still has defensive worries.

Chris Barker will miss out again after suffering a setback in his recovery from a calf injury while Mark Phillips will continue to rest a hernia in the hope he can avoid surgery.

Bilel Moshni overcame a knock to take his place in the heart of defence against Shrewsbury alongside Graham Coughlan, who himself returned from a groin injury, and the duo are set to continue.

Luke Prosser will take his place on the bench despite still suffering from the effects of a foot injury while Antonio German will be pushing for a start following a lively 35-minute cameo against Shrewsbury at the weekend.
