Shrimpers injury update: Corr and Kalala get training clearance
08 September 2011 08:21
Positive news on the injury front with Southend United striker Barry Corr and midfielder JP Kalala back training, one sooner than the other! Barry Corr: Back in action soon, we hope! With the present shortage of striking options allowed Blues boss Paul Sturrock he will be pleased to hear, along with all the Shrimpers faithful, that last season's top scorer Barry Corr has been given the nod to start training again with the rest of the squad from next Monday. This would be too early for the Tuesday game at home to Gillingham, but Plymouth, also at Roots Hall, on the Saturday, must be in Luggy's mind for Corr, if only on the bench. The 21-goal Irishman from the previous campaign has not played a game this term and will be a real boost to everyone at the club, especially as Neil Harris remains out with a groin problem and Liam Dickinson still suspended for the next two League Two clashes which will probably see Bilel Mohsni and Blair Sturrock continue their partnership upfront. Midfielder Jean-Paul Kalala though may be even fit enough to take some part in this weekend's match at Swindon Town after getting approval to resume training today (Thursday). JP also picked up a groin injury and has missed the Shrimpers last three games.
