'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Brown: Form Proves Prosser's Missed

Luke Prosser's become a key component of the Southend defeat so whenever he's unavailable we miss him, as we did on Saturday when we lost once again without him when Exeter came from behind to beat us three-two at Roots Hall.

Phil Brown didn't want to be disrespectful to others with what he said on the official website but thinks back to back defeats, without Prosser, and the five goals conceded in these defeats prove how much we've missed him.

'Prosser has been missed for sure and it's no coincidence in two games he has missed we've conceded five goals.

'That's no disrespect to the players playing there at the moment, but Prosser was a key factor in our good form up until the point he got injured.

'He's come on a lot this season and it is important we get him back out there as soon as we possibly can.'

We were expecting to welcome Prosser back into defence, wearing a protective mask, at the weekend but a calf injury picked up in Portugal meant we had to miss him again.

Brown hopes to have him back 'as soon as possible' but doesn't know if Tuesday will come too soon.

Anthony Straker, due to the birth of his first child and congratulations to him and his partner on this, was limited to a place on the bench against Exeter with Brown also admitting that his presence was missed and he will probably return to the starting line up on Tuesday as Barry Corr might have to miss out with an injury of his own.
