Alan Goodall: Suspended for the clash

Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Fleetwood Town and Southend United at Highbury Stadium.

Fleetwood midfielder Alan Goodall is suspended for their home fixture with Southend at Highbury.

Goodall was dismissed in the Cod Army's last game, a 1-0 win over Wycombe, and must serve a three-match ban.

Fourth-placed Fleetwood only have two games remaining but are three points off the top three, meaning Goodall's suspension may have to be completed in the play-offs.

Full-back Charlie Taylor is another absentee - the on-loan Leeds defender is still sidelined by an ankle problem - while midfielder Jeff Hughes broke his leg midway through the campaign.

Southend manager Phil Brown will check on the fitness of a trio of players ahead of their trip to Fleetwood.

The former Hull boss confirmed Kevan Hurst, Jakub Sokolik and John Egan were all nursing minor knocks following Monday's 1-0 home win against Accrington but is hopeful all three will be fit in time for the weekend.

Those three aside, the Shrimpers will have a clean bill of health as they look to secure the single point needed to guarantee a play-off spot with hopes of automatic promotion now a thing of the past.

Brown's team are unbeaten in four away from home and will be confident of completing the double over Fleetwood having beaten them 2-0 earlier in the season thanks to a Barry Corr brace.
