Southend United's Marc Laird still fortnight away from fitness
MARC Laird is still a fortnight away to returning to training, according to Southend United manager Phil Brown.
Laird, right, has been out of action for almost two months with the hamstring injury he sustained during the 2-0 triumph against Northampton Town in August.
But Brown has revealed that the midfielder is not yet ready to return.
“Marc’s injury is taking a little longer than was originally expected,” said Brown.
“It’s looking like another couple of weeks until he will be back in training.”
