Brown out to inflict home pain on Oxford United
Southend United manager Phil Brown is hoping his side can make the most of Oxford United’s patchy home record today and end their winless run.
Like their hosts, Southend won their first three games, but have picked up just two points from their last six.
He said: “Oxford have had a very good start to the season, but we’re looking forward to testing ourselves against them.
“And we’ve also seen that Oxford’s home form hasn’t been the best, and that’s something we want to capitalise on by trying to take the game to them.”
Southend have left back Ben Coker available after a one-game suspension, while Mark Phillips is expected to shrug off a groin strain.
Midfielder Marc Laird (hamstring) and defender Julian Bennett (knee) are both long-term absentees.
