Match Preview

In-form Shrimpers aim to stop draw-happy Cobblers Southend boss Paul Sturrock could welcome Kane Ferdinand back into his squad for the home clash against Northampton. The Republic of Ireland Under-19 international midfielder missed Tuesday night's 2-1 win against Barnet with an ankle injury but Sturrock will assess the problem before naming his starting line-up. Fellow midfielder Anthony Grant will miss out for the second successive game with concussion, while experienced centre-back Mark Phillips is sidelined with a groin problem. Striker Harry Crawford is also a doubt with an ankle problem, but top scorer Barry Corr may be fit enough to regain his place in attack after dropping to the bench in midweek with a tight hamstring. The Shrimpers have lost just once in their last nine matches and could move into the play-off places with a win against the Cobblers. Northampton could be without Josh Walker, Ben Tozer and Leon McKenzie as they look to avoid equalling a club record of six straight draws. On-loan Watford midfielder Walker lasted just 39 minutes of the latest 1-1 draw at Hereford in midweek before going off with a hamstring injury and is out. Defender Tozer missed out altogether in midweek after injuring his hamstring last weekend while striker McKenzie continues to be a doubt with a thigh injury. However, midfielder Abdul Osman is available again after completing a three-match ban, but striker Shaun Harrad serves the second of his three-game suspension. Manager Ian Sampson said: "Josh, Ben and Leon are probably all going to be out of the game on Saturday so we will have to reshuffle the pack a little bit. "John Johnson slotted in really well at centre-half at Hereford and defensively Paul Rodgers did an excellent job at right-back after coming in."

Match Report

Another draw for Cobblers Northampton made it six draws on the spin as they were held to a 1-1 draw by play-off-chasing Southend. Cobblers right-back John Johnson opened the scoring in the 27th minute when he charged upfield and fired into the bottom left-hand corner of the Southend goal from just outside the box. Yet Southend equalised seven minutes later when Barry Corr headed home a corner from Ryan Hall. The first half ended with Southend's Anthony Grant firing a rising shot over the bar and Johnson going just wide with a speculative 40-yard effort. Ben Tozer spurned a great chance to head Northampton back in front minutes after the restart, before Southend's Lee Sawyer fired a tame shot straight at goal following a good run from Grant. Both sides battled away to make the breakthrough again, but the defences remained on top as Northampton finished the stronger of the sides without being able to claim a winner.
