SOUTHEND United manager Sol Campbell is hopeful the trio of injuries suffered in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Rotherham United will not prove to be too serious.

Sam Mantom, Stephen McLaughlin and Brandon Goodship all had to be taken off in the second half at Roots Hall.

But Campbell is confident the players will not be spending too long on the sidelines.

“With the injuries, most of them are cramp or muscle problems,” said Campbell.

“McLaughlin twisted his ankle a little bit in training on Friday and it opened up a bit but he will be fine.

“Hopefully none aren't anything too bad.”

The Shrimpers were also forced into making a change to their starting line-up in attack with Stephen Humphrys replacing Tom Hopper, who missed out due to the cut he suffered on his ankle against Bristol Rovers last time out.

But Campbell feels Hopper should soon be back in action.

“We didn’t want to risk Hops because the cut he got was pretty deep,” said Campbell.

“He should be fine for next week.”

Blues should also have winger Sam Barratt back in full training this week while John White and Luke Hyam were both involved in running drills after the final whistle of Saturday’s game.
