Jacob Murphy: Expected to make Shrimpers bow

Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Southend United and Torquay United at Roots Hall.

Jacob Murphy is in line to make his Southend debut when they entertain Torquay.

The winger joined on loan from Norwich on Thursday and is expected to join fellow City youngster Jamar Loza in the Shrimpers starting line-up.

Southend will once again be without striker Barry Corr as he completes his three-match ban for his red card in the recent goalless draw with Bury.

Experienced defender Mark Phillips is unavailable after he joined Aldershot on loan, while Adam Thompson could miss out once more with a calf problem.

Torquay will assess the fitness of new signing Baily Cargill ahead of their trip to Southend.

The Bournemouth defender arrived on loan on Thursday but has a minor groin injury and could miss out on a debut at Roots Hall as the Gulls look to close the six-point gap between themselves and safety.

One player who will not feature is Notts County striker Enoch Showunmi whose month-long loan ran out after Tuesday's 1-0 defeat at York, his seventh game for United without a goal.

Joss Labadie and Shamir Goodwin are both suspended and miss out for Chris Hargreaves' struggling side.
