SOUTHEND United manager Phil Brown has selected an unchanged starting line-up for this afternoon’s match at Morecambe.

As a result, John Egan will line up alongside Mark Phillips at the heart back four but striker Lee Barnard remains among the substitutes despite impressing for the reserves at Colchester United in the week.

Southend United: Bentley, White, Phillips, Egan, Coker, Leonard, Atkinson, Timlin, Hurst, Corr, Straker

Substitutes: P Smith, Laird, Eastwood, Clifford, Payne, Gomis & Barnard
