No new worries for Rovers
John Ward has no fresh injury worries as Bristol Rovers face Southend looking to bounce back from defeat to Hartlepool last Saturday.
Ward's side suffered their heaviest loss since he arrived at the club as they were thumped 4-0 by Pools and the former Cheltenham manager could be set to ring the changes.
Alefe Santos, Chris Beardsley and Tom Lockyer, who signed a new deal this week, are all likely to be in contention as the Pirates look to get back to winning ways after back-to-back defeats.
Rovers know victory on Friday night can open up a seven-point gap between themselves and the relegation zone ahead of Saturday's fixtures.
Southend will be without the suspended Barry Corr for the clash.
The striker was shown a straight red card for an off-the-ball incident in last weekend's goalless draw with Bury and begins a three-match ban.
Luke Prosser could return to the starting line-up after he made his comeback from a calf problem for the reserves on Tuesday, while Adam Thompson may also feature after overcoming his calf injury.
Phil Brown's side are without a win in 11 league games, a run which has allowed Plymouth to leapfrog them into the play-off places.
