Mohsni: Suspended for game

Mohsni: Suspended for game

Team news ahead of Saturday's League Two clash between Southend United and Plymouth Argyle at Roots Hall.

The Shrimpers lose Bilel Mohsni to suspension for the home fixture but welcome back Liam Dickinson from his ban.

Mohsni, a defender turned attacker due to United's depleted ranks in the final third, was given his marching orders for a second bookable offence in Tuesday's 1-0 victory over Gillingham and now misses one match.

However, his loss is countered by the return of striker Dickinson, who has now completed a three-game suspension.

Neil Harris will be assessed on Friday as he bids to make his comeback from a groin injury, meaning manager Paul Sturrock may have a welcome selection dilemma to make in attack against former employers Argyle.

Lee Sawyer (thigh) is not yet ready to return, neither is Barry Corr despite edging closer to full fitness following his long-term knee injury.

Rookie defender Ladjie Soukouna is available for the Pilgrims' away match after serving his suspension.

Soukouna picked up a one-match ban for his dismissal for two yellow cards against Port Vale last weekend.

On-loan Gilligham centre-back Simon King is fighting to be fit after missing the midweek defeat to Barnet with a hip-flexor injury.

But another borrowed player, midfielder Jamie Griffiths, is likely to start after impressing on his full debut on Tuesday night.

Manager Peter Reid wants his team to stop gifting the opposition easy goals.

"We've got to get from somewhere a will to not to concede. We are conceding too easily," Reid said.

"It's driving me crackers, it must be driving the players crackers and it must be driving the supporters crackers."
