SOUTHEND United have been handed a fitness boost ahead of tomorrow night’s friendly with Millwall.

Centre-back Harry Lennon and Dru Yearwood will both be available to play despite having to come off against Dagenham & Redbridge at the weekend.

And Blues boss Kevin Bond will also be able to call on winger Stephen McLaughlin who has recovered from an ankle injury which forced him to miss the last two friendlies.

“Harry and Dru are both available to play which is good news,” said Bond.

“We also have Stephen McLaughlin back and Luke Hyam may be able to play as well.”

However, Bond confirmed midfielder Timothee Dieng and striker Simon Cox still remain sidelined with calf injuries.
