SOUTHEND United manager Chris Powell fears Stephen Hendrie will miss the rest of the season for the Shrimpers.

The left back has been out of action since mid-January with a groin problem.

And Powell is not sure whether or not Hendrie will feature again this term.

“Stephen Hendrie I don’t think we’ll see and that’s possibly for the rest of the season because there’s no real progression there,” said Powell.

"He had been playing through the pain with it for a while but it's become too much now."

Hendrie has made 24 appearances for Blues so far this season
