First published in Sport by

SOUTHEND United centre-back Luke Prosser is a doubt for tomorrow’s game with Exeter City after injuring his calf in training.

The defender has missed Blues’ last two games with a fractured cheekbone.

But manager Phil Brown is now sweating on a different kind of injury.

“Luke has taken a kick to the calf in training and right now I would say he’s 50/50 for the game,” said Brown.

“We will have to wait and see how he responds to treatment but hopefully he will be OK.”

On loan Burnley right-back Luke O’Neill is also back in contention after recovering from a thigh strain but will also face a late fitness test.

“Luke has trained for the last couple of days but he’s missed a month’s worth of football so we will have to see how he is too,” added Brown.

The Shrimpers will definitely be without midfielder Conor Clifford as he begins a four match ban after being sent off at Mansfield Town last weekend.
