SOUTHEND United have yet to select a caretaker manager, Echosport understands.

Phil Brown and his assistant Craig Fagan were both dismissed following Saturday’s 4-0 defeat against Chesterfield at Roots Hall.

But Blues have not yet decided who will take charge before the next manager is appointed.

The Shrimpers’ director of football Ricky Duncan remains at the club along with under 23 coaches Danny Heath and Mark Moss.

Blues host Chertsey Town in the fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup on Saturday.
