Adam Thompson has linked up with Southend

Thompson has missed out of late due to a calf injury but was looking to make it through training on Thursday without any ill-effects, while fellow defender White completed a one-match ban as he missed last weekend's 3-1 defeat at Newport.

Centre-back Mark Phillips serves the second game of his three-match suspension following his red card against Dagenham.

Striker Freddy Eastwood may struggle to be fit for a couple of weeks as he manages a troublesome knee injury, although long-term absentee Marc Laird has been training this week.
