SOUTHEND United have Harry Taylor back from suspension for Saturday’s clash with table-topping Chesterfield at Roots Hall.

Taylor missed Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Altrincham with a one match ban but will be back for Blues this afternoon and looks set to go straight back into the starting line-up.

However, the Shrimpers will again be without striker Callum Powell (knee), midfielder Cav Miley (knee), defender Jason Demetriou (hamstring), centre-back Louis Lomas (groin) and goalkeeper Collin Andeng Ndi (ankle).

On loan striker Daniel Kanu and midfielder Mauro Vilhete are both away on international duty but Noor Husin is expected to be available.
