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

As a result, the Shrimpers chief has again kept faith with winger Kevan Hurst on his return to his former team.

David Worrall remains on the bench where Will Atkinson returns in place of Ellis Brown after recovering from an eye problem.

However, there is no place in the squad for new signing Gary Deegan.

Southend United: Bentley, White, Bolger, Prosser, Coker, Leonard, Clifford, Hurst, Corr, Weston, Coulthirst

Subs: P Smith, Thompson, Ibenfeldt, Worrall, Barnard, Payne & Atkinson
