SOUTHEND United winger Jack Bridge faces a late fitness check ahead of Tuesday night’s match with Woking at Roots Hall.

Bridge went off with a thigh problem during the second half of Saturday’s 1-0 win against Yeovil Town.

And Blues boss Kevin Maher will have to wait and see whether Bridge will be fit enough to stay in the side.

“He’s still a bit sore and he’s someone we will have to check on,” said Maher.

“It was a light session today but we’ll have to see how he is and one or two others as well.”

But among those likely to miss out is defender Nathan Ralph who has a foot problem.

When asked if Ralph would be available, Maher said: “Probably not, he’s still a bit off with his foot.”
