SOUTHEND United defender Adam Crowther missed Blues' win against Boreham Wood due to a calf problem.

The centre-back suffered the injury during training on Saturday.

And Shrimpers boss Kevin Maher is unsure when Crowther will be back in contention.

"Adam Crowther was ruled out today with a calf problem," said Maher.

"It was only Saturday so we’ll how that settles down."

Crowther, who has made 13 appearances since joining the Shrimpers from King's Lynn in January, joins midfielder Noor Husin on the sidelines.

Husin has missed the last three matches with a shin problem.

And Maher is still waiting to discover the full extent of the injury.

"Noor is a difficult one because he’s been playing through it," said Maher.

"We need to get him looked at to see where that goes."
