Frenchman missing for Shrimpers
Published : 03 Sep 2009 16:14:06
The French midfielder was sent off at Swindon last weekend after being shown two yellow cards, and although the referee contacted boss Steve Tilson to admit he had made a mistake, Christophe will serve a one-match ban. Tilson is short of options as the Shrimpers go in search of their first League One win of the season after losing several players this week. John White and Matt Heath have returned to Colchester after their loan spells came to an end, while Alex Revell has joined Swindon on loan and Kevin Betsy has returned to Wycombe. On-loan midfielder Lee Sawyer (knee) is an injury concern and Damien Scannell is expected to be on the bench once again despite scoring against Swindon, as he builds up his fitness following injury and illness. Francis Laurent (ankle) could be restored to the starting line-up.
