League One outfit Southend United have suffered a double injury blow.
The Shrimpers are set to miss winger Damian Scannell for much of the rest of the season due to a groin injury.
He is out for a month after he sustained the injury as he made a late substitute's appearance in Saturday's 1-0 win over Walsall.
And Richie Foran is poised to undergo knee surgery on Friday and is out for the rest of the campaign.
The striker - who has scored four goals this term - has been out on loan at League Two side Darlington.
