SOUTHEND United manager Phil Brown has made one change to his starting line-up for this afternoon’s crucial play-off clash against Burton Albion at Roots Hall with Anthony Straker coming in to the side.

Straker has replaced Jacob Murphy on the left flank but the rest of the side remains unchanged as Michael Timlin (ankle) and John White (thigh) both shook off slight knocks.

However, Conor Clifford and Jack Payne are both back on the bench with Marc Laird and Bedsente Gomis dropping out of the squad.

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

Subs: P Smith, Prosser, Eastwood, Murphy, Clifford, Payne & Barnard
