Southend hope Adam Thompson will be available to face Mansfield on Friday night, while John White returns from suspension.

Thompson has missed out of late due to a calf injury but was looking to make it through training on Thursday without any ill-effects, while fellow defender White completed a one-match ban as he missed last weekend's 3-1 defeat at Newport.

Centre-back Mark Phillips serves the second game of his three-match suspension following his red card against Dagenham.

Striker Freddy Eastwood may struggle to be fit for a couple of weeks as he manages a troublesome knee injury, although long-term absentee Marc Laird has been training this week.

James Jennings comes back into the reckoning for Mansfield.

Jennings missed the last-gasp home defeat to Plymouth through suspension but after serving his one-game ban against Argyle the left-back will probably go straight back into manager Paul Cox's starting line-up on Friday night.

Goalkeeper Alan Marriott will be assessed after back spasms ruled him out last weekend but centre-half John Dempster, serving the second game of his three-match suspension, and fellow defender Martin Riley (Achilles) are definitely out.

Cox is confident of signing Stoke striker James Alabi on loan before the game at Roots Hall.
