Tilson to decide on Emanuel

06 Aug 2008 - 13:17:23

Southend United boss Steve Tilson could hand a permanent contract to Luton Town left-back Lewis Emanuel who is currently on trial at Roots Hall.

The Shrimpers manager is desperate to strengthen a threadbare squad that has been decimated by 12 departures since the end of last season.

The club have even been forced to postpone their annual team photo - due to a lack of players - as Tilson currently has only 13 fit senior outfield players at his disposal, including transfer-listed duo Matt Harrold and Richie Foran.

"I told Lewis we're looking at another couple of targets and will get back to him with a decision on Thursday," said Tilson.
