Coid blow for Stanley
Accrington boss John Coleman will again be without defender Danny Coid when his side host Southend.
The summer signing is nursing an injury which has ruled him out of Stanley's opening two matches of the season.
The former Blackpool man missed last Saturday's goalless draw at Northampton on the opening day due to injury and the midweek 2-0 defeat to Scunthorpe in the first round of the Carling Cup.
However, he is expected to be in contention when Coleman's men host Bradford on Tuesday.
Coleman has no other major concerns and assessed Ian Thomas-Moore in training this week as the former Tranmere striker bids to earn a contract.
Coleman said: "We had five one on ones in the first 25 minutes [against Scunthorpe] but if you don't take your chances you don't win games."
Southend defender Mark Phillips is facing a race against time to be fit.
The 28-year-old had to come off at half-time during Tuesday's Carling Cup exit to Leyton Orient after picking up another groin injury.
"I felt something tighten up in my groin towards the end of the first half in the Orient game but I'm hopeful I'll be OK for Saturday," Phillips told the Echo.
Manager Paul Sturrock will be hoping Phillips is fit to face Stanley as he is already without skipper Chris Barker who is out for the next two or three weeks with a grade one tear of his groin.
Last season`s top scorers Barry Corr (knee) and Blair Sturrock (ankle) are only just starting their pre-season programmes and are around two weeks away from being involved.
Shrimpers win again
Southend chalked up their second league win of the season with Ryan Hall firing home the winner in a 2-1 victory at Accrington.
The Shrimpers won a penalty in the first minute for a push by Kevin McIntyre on Anthony Grant and Liam Dickinson calmly slotted home his first goal for Southend from the spot.
After that it was all the visitors with Ryan Leonard firing over in a good position and winger Hall having a fierce strike saved by Stanley keeper Sean Murdoch.
However, with Stanley's first shot on 40 minutes, left back McIntyre's 25-yard free kick was spilled by keeper Glen Morris into the path of skipper Andy Procter who tapped home from four yards out.
There were few chances in the second half but Southend regained the lead on 67 minutes when, from a goal kick, Neil Harris's ball into the box was not dealt with and Hall stole in front of the defence 10 yards out to hook the ball in the top of the net.
Accrington were reduced to 10 men when McIntyre was sent off in injury time firstly for a foul on Grant and then for protesting in quick succession - and there was still time for Procter to lash a strike against the crossbar in the dying seconds.
