SOUTHEND United manager Paul Sturrock has made two changes to his starting line-up for tonight's Johnstone's Paint Trophy area semi-final at Oxford United.

Anthony Straker has come in for the cup tied Marc Laird in midfield while captain Chris Barker has returned at left-back in place of Luke Prosser.

However, the rest of the side remains unchanged with Barry Corr continuing in attack alongside with Gavin Tomlin as both Britt Assombalonga (ankle) and Freddy Eastwood (knee) failed late fitness tests.

Southend United: Smith, Clohessy, Cresswell, Phillips, Barker, Woodyard, Hurst, Timlin, Straker, Tomlin, Corr

Subs: Martin, Prosser, Bentley, Leonard & Benyon
