ISAAC Hutchinson is back in the thoughts of Southend United manager Chris Powell after his midweek heroics in the Essex Senior Cup.

Hutchinson scored four goals in Blues' 5-2 win at Waltham Abbey.

And Powell is now considering including the youngster in his squad for Saturday's FA Cup clash with Barnsley.

"Isaac got four goals and I’m sure someone like him will come into my thinking for sure," said Powell.

"It’s good to see and he also opened his professional career with a goal against Cambridge.

"He found the Colchester game a touch harder but there’s no rush.

"If he’s not involved in Saturday then I’m sure he will be involved in the up and coming games."
