Martin in race against time

David Martin faces a late fitness test ahead of Southend's home clash against Crewe.

The wide man left Priestfield on Monday on crutches due to a foot injury picked up during the second half of the 2-1 win over Gillingham, a victory which ended a four-match winless run and sent Paul Sturrock's side back to the top of League Two.

Martin now faces a race against time to be fit to face the Alex.

Sturrock will not want to make any further changes to a winning XI having stuck to his pre-match promise on Monday by freshening up his stuttering side.

Martin was one of four players handed a recall along with fit-again centre-back Mark Phillips, fellow defender Luke Prosser and midfielder Kane Ferdinand.

Ryan Leonard, Barry Corr, Harry Crawford (all knee) and Lee Sawyer (thigh) remain missing.
