Southend could remain unchanged as they bid to extend their unbeaten home run.

The Shrimpers have not tasted defeat in eight home matches and have not conceded a goal in their last four fixtures at Roots Hall.

Bilel Mohsni made his first start after recovering from a broken nose in the goalless draw with Macclesfield and looks set to line up again.

But fellow defender Johnny Herd is expecting to leave the club.

The 21-year-old scored for the reserves against Watford in midweek following his return from a hamstring injury but he will be plying his trade elsewhere next season.

Albion put Paul Sturrock's men to the sword with a 3-1 victory back in December.

Adam Bolder will return to the Burton squad.

The midfielder missed the two games over Easter after suffering a shoulder injury in training last week.

It could be the only change to Paul Peschisolido's squad, depending on whether defender Paul Boertien is ready to return following a long absence with a groin problem.

However, Bolder will have to settle for a place on the bench with Peschisolido set to name an unchanged side as Albion attempt to extend a four-game unbeaten run.

Nathan Stanton requires a groin operation and will miss the remainder of the season while fellow defender Ryan Austin will also miss the final two matches with a hand injury.
