Matthew Lund is again struggling for Southend's trip to Rochdale but Luke Prosser returns from suspension.

Midfielder Lund, who has extended his loan stay from Stoke until the end of the season, missed Tuesday's disappointing 2-0 home defeat to Plymouth with a hip injury.

Defender Prosser returns to contention having completed his two-match ban in midweek, but Mark Phillips (broken toe) and Chris Barker (Achilles) continue to miss out.

Centre-back Ryan Cresswell returned to manager Paul Sturrock's starting XI against the Pilgrims having recovered from his calf injury and he will again hope to be involved, as will fit-again strikers Gavin Tomlin and Barry Corr.

Sturrock admits Southend need to win all seven of their remaining games this season if they are to have any chance of reaching the play-offs having won just one of their last six.
