SOUTHEND United manager Phil Brown has made one change to his starting line-up for this afternoon’s game with Oldham Athletic with Stephen Hendrie returning to the team.

Hendrie – whose previous League start came in September – has replaced the suspended Michael Timlin on the left hand side of the defence but the rest of the side remains unchanged.

Fit-again midfielder Anthony Wordsworth has been selected among the substitutes.

Southend United: Oxley, Demetriou, Turner, Ferdinand, Hendrie, Kightly, Wright, Leonard, McLaughlin, Cox, Fortune

Subs: Bishop, Wordsworth, Ba, Yearwood, McGlashan, White & Ranger
