Football - Corr cleared for Shrimpers duty

Barry Corr is available for Southend's home clash against Northampton having won his appeal against last weekend's red card.

PA Sport Report

The striker was sent off in the Shrimpers' 1-0 win at Hartlepool when he tangled with defender Jack Baldwin but the dismissal has been rescinded and Corr will not now serve a three-match suspension.

Mark Phillips is struggling with a niggle and will be assessed, with recent loan signing Adam Thompson ready to step in if required.

Fellow defender Julian Bennett has been ruled out for around six months having ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament.
