Southend V Peterborough at Roots Hall : Match Preview

16 October 2017
Jermaine McGlashan suspended for Southend

Jermaine McGlashan will miss Southend's Sky Bet League One clash with Peterborough at Roots Hall through suspension.

McGlashan was sent off for a two-footed challenge in the second half of the 3-0 defeat at Wigan and begins a three-match ban.

Michael Turner was close to being involved against Wigan after nearing recovery from a hamstring injury and could feature.

Boss Phil Brown made five changes for the loss against the League One leaders and could tinker with his line-up once more in response to a fifth defeat of the season.

Peterborough have two injury concerns as they seek to halt their free-fall down the table when they travel to Southend.

Midfielder Michael Doughty missed the 1-0 home defeat by Gillingham because of a back problem and remains a doubt.

Junior Morias' thigh problem could see him miss out once more, but Callum Chettle should return from a hamstring issue.

"The rest of October is big for us now. We need nine points from three games," Posh boss Grant McCann said.
