Football - Shrimpers' injury problems mount up

Southend manager Phil Brown will leave it late to make a decision on several of his squad ahead of the trip to Scunthorpe.

The former Hull boss confirmed John White, John Egan and Ben Coker are all doubts after picking up knocks in Saturday's defeat at Morecambe but will be assessed ahead of the game.

However, Brown did confirm the Shrimpers will definitely be without Luke Prosser and Adam Thompson as the defensive duo continue to struggle with respective calf injuries.

Fellow defender Julian Bennett is unlikely to feature again this term after a knee problem brought his season to a premature end.
