Teams News For Southend

Last updated : 18 August 2007 By Kevin Markey
Flo missed Tuesday night's Carling Cup win at Macclesfield Town after complaining of tight hamstrings, but he has trained this week and will strengthen options up front for the Whites first home game of the season.

Shaun Derry (Achilles) and Gylfi Einarsson (hip) are the only other long-term worries, although both midfielders have returned to training and are beginning a belated pre-season schedule.

Leeds should otherwise have their full squad available, and Dennis Wise is likely to restore a number of experienced players to his line-up after fielding a young side against Macclesfield.

Alan Thompson and Andy Hughes should regain their places in midfield, while Manuel Rui Marques is fit to play at centre-back after overcoming a slight niggle.

Jamie Clapham is set to be added to the squad after signing on loan from Wolves.

The Whites(from): Ankergren, Richardson, Gardner, Heath, Marques, Parker, Thompson, Hughes, Douglas, Prutton, Howson, Westlake, Carole, Delph, Kandol, Beckford, Flo, Elliott, Clapham.
