OLI Coker has returned to the starting line-up for Southend United’s FA Trophy against Hampton & Richmond at Roots Hall.

Coker missed the 1-1 draw at Gateshead due to a thigh problem in Blues’ last match.

But he starts today’s third round tie in place of Dan Mooney who drops to the bench.

Fit-again goalkeeper Collin Andeng Ndi is also on the bench along with midfielder Wes Fonguck who has recovered from a hamstring issue.

Southend United: Martin, Scott-Morriss, Kabongolo, Kensdale, Ralph, Bridge, Taylor, Husin, Coker, Wood, Cardwell.

Subs not used: Andeng Ndi, Mooney, Fonguck & Vilhete.
