Match Preview

Sturrock to rule on Shrimpers quartet Paul Sturrock must decide whether to recall Liam Dickinson, Kane Ferdinand, Ryan Hall or Bilel Mohsni for Southend's crunch clash at home to promotion rivals Crawley. The quartet were omitted from Sturrock's matchday squad for Saturday's 2-0 triumph at Burton and it remains to be seen whether they will come into contention on Monday. Dickinson, Ferdinand and Hall were punished for breaching club discipline procedures in the team hotel the night before last weekend's defeat at Morecambe, while the conduct of winger Mohsni was also once again in the spotlight following his behaviour at the Globe Arena. Mohsni returned to France last week due to a family matter while he also claimed to be nursing a toe problem. Sturrock could opt to keep faith with the same XI who triumphed at the Pirelli Stadium, ending a run of back-to-back defeats. Goalkeeper Glenn Morris (thigh) and midfielder Jean-Paul Kalala (knee) will again miss out, meaning loan signing Cameron Belford and Anthony Grant will continue as will Lee Hills following his weekend his debut at left-back. Kyle McFadzean is doubtful for Crawley. The defender limped out of Saturday's 1-0 home defeat by Torquay with a knee injury. Warren Cummings replaced McFadzean for his debut after joining on loan from Bournemouth on Friday, but Claude Davis could step in at Roots Hall after missing out against the Gulls following a long trip home from international duty with Jamaica. Colchester loanee Lloyd James continues at right-back with David Hunt still recovering from the broken foot he suffered against Stoke in the FA Cup. Scott Shearer is still out with a knee injury so Rene Gilmartin keeps his place in goal. Striker Karl Hawley is pushing to return to the squad after missing out on Saturday.

Match Report

Belford heroics deny Crawley Cameron Belford had a home debut to remember as his penalty save earned 10-man Southend a 0-0 draw against promotion rivals Crawley Town. The goalkeeper, on loan from Bury, blocked Billy Clarke's low spot-kick down the middle with his legs and then scrambled to collect the loose ball after 61 minutes. Crawley striker Clarke had earned the penalty after Belford parried a Josh Simpson shot and the forward's follow-up was handled on the goal-line by Southend skipper Chris Barker, who was sent off. Things got worse for Blues as substitute striker Liam Dickinson was carried off on a stretcher after 80 minutes following a 50-50 tackle with Town left-back Warren Cummings. But despite playing six minutes of stoppage time, Crawley were unable to get their first win in six matches. The visitors had the only shots on target in the first half, with Sergio Torres, Dannie Bulman and Scott Davies testing Belford. Steve Evans' team started the second half brightly with Belford parrying a Clarke effort before David Martin had a tame shot for Southend. The game sprung into life on the hour mark but Southend held firm to maintain their third place in the table, with Crawley remaining sixth.
