SOUTHEND United manager Sol Campbell hopes to have both Brandon Goodship and Jason Demetriou back for tomorrow’s clash with Burton Albion.

Goodship missed Tuesday night’s 1-0 defeat to Gillingham with an ankle injury while Campbell opted to rest Demetriou due to an ongoing knee problem.

But Campbell could have them available again at the weekend.

“Hopefully there’s enough time for Brandon to get back for Saturday,” said Campbell.

“Hopefully his ankle won’t cause him many problems going forwards.

He should be OK but he needs to train.

“JD has played a lot of games and we just wanted to rotate the players and the personnel.

“But everyone will be utilised and will be rotating for Saturday.”

The Shrimpers were boosted by the return of defenders Harry Kyprianou and Joe Shaughnessy against the Gills.

But Campbell must now decide how best to use them about the Brewers.

“We will decide who will play and go from there, said the 45-year-old.

“It was a big ask for Harry because he’s been out for such a long time but he did well to get through.

“There will be rustiness and that’s normal but the more he plays the better he will get.”

Kyprianou came back into the starting line-up after 15 months on the sidelines with an Achilles problem while Shaughnessy - who had been out since November with a knee injury - played the final 15 minutes.

And Campbell is happy to have the Irishman back in action.

“He added a bit of height we’ve been lacking and it’s nice to get some of the players back,” said Campbell.

“He looked sharp and we’re working really hard so it’s nice to see some players coming back.”

But Campbell is still short of options.

“Other teams have the luxury of fully loaded squads and experienced players with some youngsters here and there,” said Campbell.

“We don’t have that luxury so we have to work harder but we want to win some games and get some draws.”
