Boss has concerns over striker’s fitness

Southend manager Paul Sturrock has expressed misgivings about Rowan Vine’s fitness.

The QPR forward recently joined Sturrock’s side on trial ahead of a possible loan move.

Vine scored the only goal of the game in a reserve match against Oxford but Sturrock is unsure whether to retain him.

Sturrock told Southend’s website: “He didn’t look fit to me and that’s a worrying aspect – how long it would take. That’s something I’ve been talking to the fitness coaches about.”
