SOUTHEND United's Ryan Leonard and Adam Thompson both missed Saturday’s game at Braintree Town.

Leonard is still sidelined with a leg injury while Thompson has a back problem.

But boss Phil Brown expects them to be in action again soon.

“If this had been the FA Cup final I’m sure they would’ve been able to play,” said Brown.

“Lenny could be back in one of the games we have coming up this week but I’m not too sure about Thommo just yet.”
