Hughes banned for Shrimpers test
The centre-back was shown a straight red for a tackle on Ashley Vincent and will now start a three-match ban, ruling him out of the games against Southend, Exeter and Stockport. Manny Smith is likely to step in during his absence. Richard Taundry was deployed at right-back against Colchester at the weekend with Darryl Westlake ruled out due to illness and Rhys Weston (hamstring) still sidelined. But manager Chris Hutchings is hopeful of Westlake's return in time for the tip to Roots Hall while Weston is 50/50 having resumed full training but without the desired level of match fitness.
