Injury doubts over Southend trio
All picked up knocks during the damaging 2-0 defeat against Millwall on Tuesday night and have missed training and remain doubtful to face the Robins at Roots Hall. Laurent is needed in attack after the sale of top-scorer Lee Barnard, as he is the current leading scorer with three league goals. Manager Steve Tilson will also be without key midfielder Alan McCormack. The former Preston man begins a two-match suspension after he collected his 10th booking of the season against Millwall. On-loan Sunderland defender Jean-Yves M'Voto is still continuing his rehabilitation from hip surgery and remains a doubt. Tilson is looking for a first win in four to stop the Shrimpers from sliding down the League One table.
