Straker and Leonard handed starts

13 October 2012

Manager Paul Sturrock has handed starts to Anthony Straker and Ryan Leonard for today's match against Rotherham United.

The Blues boss has recalled left-back Straker due to an injury to Luke Prosser at the New York Stadium.

Meanwhile, Ryan Leonard is handed a start after missing Tuesday's 2-0 win against Dagenham and Redbridge with a hamstring problem.

He replaced Alex Woodyard in midfield as new loan signing Jonson Clarke-Harris settles for a place on the substitute bench.

Southend: Smith, Clohessy, Cresswell, Barker, Straker, Hurst, Leonard, Timlin, Martin, Tomlin, Assombalonga.

Subs: Coughlan, Eastwood, Clarke-Harris, Bentley, Paxman, Benyon, Woodyard.
