Southend vs Wycombe preview
Last Updated: 12/04/19 2:12pm
Harry Bunn could be a doubt for Southend's crucial Sky Bet League One clash against fellow strugglers Wycombe at Roots Hall on Saturday.
Bunn, who scored during Southend's 2-2 draw with Fleetwood last weekend, suffered a hamstring problem and went off in the second half.
New Southend boss Kevin Bond must also assess the fitness of Luke Hyam, while Jason Demetriou has missed training this week. But Stephen Humphrys, who returned to action after suffering a facial injury by going on for Bunn against Fleetwood, could start.
