SOUTHEND United boss Kevin Maher expects Tom Clifford to be fit enough to face Halifax Town on Tuesday night - despite the defender suffering a suspected broken nose.

Clifford had to be taken off with the injury midway through the second half against Solihull Moors on Saturday.

But Maher is not ruling the left-back out of tomorrow evening’s encounter at the Shay.

“We haven’t had it confirmed it’s broken but it does look that way,” said Maher.

“He took a whack on the nose on Saturday and that’s what defenders do.

“He’s a proper defender now that’s happened!

“It’s part and parcel of football unfortunately but he trained today and should be OK.”
