SOUTHEND United manager Chris Powell has made one change to his starting line-up for this afternoon’s clash with Wigan Athletic at Roots Hall.

The alteration comes at the heart of the back four where Anton Ferdinand has replaced the injured John White.

However, despite Ferdinand’s return to the team, Ben Coker has stayed as Shrimpers captain.

Southend United: Oxley, Demetriou, Turner, Ferdinand, Coker, McLaughlin, Yearwood, Timlin, Kightly, Cox, Fortune

Subs: Bishop, McGlashan, Ladapo, Klass, Harrison, Kyprianou & Bwomono
