SOUTHEND United will be without striker Myles Weston for Saturday's game with Hartlepool.

Weston is currently on international duty with Antigua and the former Gillingham forward scored on his debut in a 2-2 draw against Haiti in the Caribbean Cup.

Weston, who has scored twice for the Shrimpers this season, is expected to line up again for Antigua against Jamaica tomorrow night.

A Blues spokesman confirmed Weston would be back in time for next weekend’s game at Tranmere Rovers.
