SOUTHEND United duo John White and Tom Hopper both picked up injuries in Saturday's 0-0 draw with Oxford United.

White picked up a hamstring problem while Hopper suffered an ankle injury.

But Blues boss Chris Powell does not yet know how serious the setbacks will prove to be.

"John felt something in his hamstring so we couldn’t really take any chances but we don’t know how serious it is yet," said Powell.

“Tom took a whack on his ankle so we will assess it and go from there.”
