The midfielder has returned to parent club Millwall following the end of his loan spell but the club remain hopeful of a deal for Marc Laird.

Laird's loan also expired following the New Year's Day defeat to Gillingham and he returned to Leyton Orient but could feature if terms are agreed in time.

Mark Phillips is hoping he can earn a recall to the side after coming off the bench last weekend following his recovery from a knee problem.

Striker Neil Harris is back in full training following a knee injury that has kept him sidelined since September but he is not expected to return to action until the Essex Senior Cup next week.
