Three changes for Southend United against Northampton Town as Bilel Mohsni starts
BILEL Mohsni has gone straight back in to Southend United’s starting line up as one of three changes made by boss Paul Sturrock for this afternoon’s game against Northampton Town.
The Frenchman will start at the centre of the back four with Mickey Spillane pushing forward in to midfield in place of Alex Woodyard who drops down on to the bench.
New signing Matthew Lund also starts in midfield after signing on loan from Stoke City and he replaces Ryan Leonard in the side.
The final change comes in attack where Britt Assombalonga has been preferred to Ben Reeves.
Southend United: Smith, Clohessy, Mohsni, Prosser, Straker, Hurst, Lund, Spillane, Mayor, Assombalonga, Corr
Substitutes: Coughlan, Eastwood, Harris, Bentley, Leonard, Reeves & Woodyard
