SOUTHEND United manager Phil Brown has named an unchanged starting line-up for this afternoon’s clash with Exeter City at Roots Hall.

Defender Luke Prosser failed a late fitness test on a calf problem while Luke O’Neill was also ruled out with a thigh strain.

As a result, Adam Thompson will again line up alongside Mark Phillips at the heart of the back four with John White at right-back.

Young striker Jason Williams was also selected among the substitutes.

Southend United: Bentley, White, Thompson, Phillips, Coker, Hurst, Leonard, Timlin, Atkinson, Barnard, Corr

Substitutes: P Smith, Laird, Eastwood, Straker, Payne, Williams & Gomis
