Hill named the same starting XI from the victory at Walsall for Saturday’s unexpected 1-0 win at promotion-chasing Rotherham.
Forward Stephen Humphrys shook off his stomach problem to net the only goal, but was replaced by Steve Davies during the closing stages while midfielder Oliver Rathbone is another who could come into Hill’s thinking.
Defender Niall Canavan (ankle) and midfielder Keith Keane (groin) continue their recoveries.
Southend will again check on defender John White ahead of the trip.
White has been stepping up his recovery from an ankle problem as he targets a return having not played since the start of February.
Michael Kightly, Josh Wright and Marc-Antoine Fortune all came into the side for Saturday’s goalless draw against Doncaster, so could be handed another chance by boss Chris Powell.
Defender Rob Kiernan continues his recovery from a knee problem.
