SOUTHEND United manager Sol Campbell insists the Shrimpers will not change their approach for Sunday’s FA Cup first round clash at Dover Athletic.

Blues have lined up with a five man defence in Campbell’s first three games in charge against tough trio Ipswich Town, Sunderland and Portsmouth.

But Campbell will be keeping things the same against Dover, despite the Shrimpers being favourites for the first time with the former England international in charge.

“It will be the same,” said Campbell.

“You have to have a good attitude and you have to play like they’re equal to us.

“The second you think you’re better than someone before you kick a ball is when problems start.

“You can’t do that and I’ll be getting that message across to the players.”

The Shrimpers have on loan midfielder Ethan Hamilton and winger Stephen McLaughlin available this weekend after the duo both completed three match suspensions for red cards they were shown during the 7-1 defeat to Doncaster Rovers last month.

Midfielder Luke Hyam faces a late check on a hamstring problem which forced him out of Tuesday night’s 4-1 defeat at Portsmouth but midfielder Sam Mantom (hamstring), striker Charlie Kelman (ankle) and defender John White (broken arm) are expected to miss out.

Defender Liam Ridgewell is also unlikely to be called upon as he continues to work his way back to full fitness following a calf injury.
