SOUTHEND Manor will be without the attacking threat of Ryan Imbert for their Essex Senior League clash with Tower Hamlets.

Manor will welcome Tower Hamlets to Southchurch Park tomorrow.

And Imbert’s absence means Michael Walther, who took charge last month, will have to make changes to the side which claimed a 3-3 draw at Takeley in midweek.

Manor boss Walther said: “We are without Ryan Imbert for the game, which is a blow because it worked so well with him in a front three at Takeley.

“We will now have to look to change it around a bit.

“It’s been a good start at the club and we want to build on that.

“I think it’s a winnable game but they have a young team who like to pop the ball around.

“We have to fight for the right to win and get on the ball.”

Manor head into the clash sitting 12th in the standings, while Tower Hamlets are second from bottom.
