Football - Shrimpers eye double fitness boost

Barry Corr and Luke Prosser are in contention for Southend's trip to Mansfield.

PA Sport Report

Striker Corr was forced off at half-time in last Friday's goalless draw at home to Newport suffering with double vision but is back in training and hoping for involvement.

Defender Prosser missed the clash against County having sustained a fractured cheekbone versus Dagenham, but he was due to undergo surgery on Thursday and should be cleared to play wearing a protective face mask providing there are no complications.

Luke O'Neill continues to miss out with his thigh problem, as does long-term absentee Julian Bennett (knee).
