Chairman Ron Martin says a new boss will be in place by the end of Monday as he attempts to salvage the club's League Two play-off hopes.

And Brown - out of work since leaving Preston in December 2011 - met the Southend players at the club's training ground on Monday morning.

The 53-year-old is now believed to be finalising terms and he will take charge of the team for Friday's trip to Bradford.

Southend go to Valley Parade with six points to make up on seventh-placed Rotherham in their remaining seven games.

A Wembley date with Crewe in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final is scheduled for 7 April, when Martin hopes Sturrock will return to lead out the team.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
