Southend United make six changes for JPT clash with Dagenham & Redbridge
BLUES boss Phil Brown has made six changes to his starting line-up for tonight’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy clash against Dagenham & Redbridge.
Goalkeeper Paul Smith has been handed his first start of the season in place of Daniel Bentley between the sticks while Mark Phillips has recovered from a hip injury to line up at centre-back instead of the unavailable Adam Thompson.
Michael Timlin and Anthony Straker have also been recalled in midfield in place of Ryan Leonard and Will Atkinson while Jack Payne has been selected in a more forward position after coming in for Cauley Woodrow.
He will line up alongside Craig Reid who has replaced Barry Corr.
