BLUES boss Phil Brown has made two enforced changes to his starting line-up for this afternoon’s clash at Newport County.
Ryan Auger has been handed his debut at right-back in place of the suspended John White while Luke Prosser has returned at centre-back to replace Mark Phillips who begins a three match suspension following his red card against Dagenham & Redbridge on Tuesday night.
The rest of the starting line-up remains unchanged but Freddy Eastwood has dropped out of the squad after suffering an injury in training.
His place on the bench has been taken by the fit again Craig Reid who could face his former club this afternoon.
In the absence of White, the team are captained by striker Barry Corr.
Southend United: Bentley, Auger, Kiernan, Prosser, Coker, Leonard, Atkinson, Clifford, Hurst, Corr, Woodrow
Subs: Smith, Timlin, Reid, Njie, Edwards, Straker & Payne
