ON LOAN Southend United midfielder James Olayinka is back in training with the Shrimpers.

Olayinka, who is with Blues from Arsenal, has missed the last two matches with a groin problem.

But Southend boss Mark Molesley is hopeful Olayinka will be fit enough to feature against Crawley Town at Roots Hall on Saturday.

"James has taken part in training today so hopefully he reacts well to it and can hopefully play some part in the game," said Molesley.

"It’s a little bit of a sportsman’s hernia and it’s just a case of managing his pain.

"But this morning was the best he’s looked and hopefully he will be in contention for Saturday."

"It’s now or never for us now and we won’t be holding anyone back but at the same time we have to get the fittest and most able team out on the pitch."
