SOUTHEND United will be without both Charlie Kelman and John White for the next few weeks.

Kelman is currently sidelined with an ankle problem while White has broken his arm.

And Blues’ caretaker boss Gary Waddock does not expect the duo to be back soon.

“Charlie has had a scan and he will be out for a few weeks,” said Waddock.

“John will be out for four to six weeks.”

Liam Ridgewell is also not yet ready to return from a calf injury.
