SOUTHEND United manager Kevin Bond was frustrated to see Dru Yearwood and Harry Lennon both having to come off at Dagenham & Redbridge this afternoon.

Lennon went off with calf problems in the first half while Yearwood suffered a hamstring injury after the break.

And Bond was disappointed to see more players forced onto the side-lines.

“The frustrating thing is we’ve had a couple of injuries,” said Bond.

“Dru and Harry have had to come off and we already have eight long-term injuries who we haven’t seen at all in pre-season.

“It’s frustrating. Harry has tight calves and Dru felt his hamstring before getting a smack on the nose.

“But we were concerned about his hamstring but we took him off to stop it getting worse.”
