SOUTHEND United manager Phil Brown has made one change to his starting line-up for this afternoon’s game at York City with new loan signing Cian Bolger replacing Mark Phillips in defence.

Bolger, who will spend the next month with the Shrimpers from Bolton Wanderers, will line up alongside Adam Thompson at the heart of the back four.

But there is no place in the squad for striker Lee Barnard who misses out with an illness.

Southend United: Bentley, White, Bolger, Thompson, Coker, Leonard, Atkinson, Timlin, Hurst, Corr, Straker

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