STEPHEN Humphrys suffered a broken nose and concussion while scoring for Southend United at Accrington Stanley this afternoon.

Humphrys clattered into Accrington goalkeeper Jonny Maxted when heading home for Blues and was stretchered off after receiving a lengthy spell of treatment.

And Blues boss Chris Powell has confirmed Humphrys broke his nose and could be facing a fortnight on the sidelines with concussion.

“It was very brave from Stephen for the goal but he’s paid for it with a broken nose and concussion,” said Powell.

“It’s more than likely he will be out for a couple of weeks now.

“His family were here and he’s from up this way but he’s still at hospital and hopefully he will be OK.”

Humphrys’ header was cancelled out by Accrington’s Dan Barlaser as the game ended in a 1-1 draw.
