FOOTBALL: RYAN Hall wants to keep Southend United out of trouble at Morecambe tomorrow.

The winger faced the Shrimps at the Globe Arena almost exactly a year ago just hours after coming out of prison but was unable to stop Blues suffering a 2-1 defeat.

However, with no off-the-field problems affecting him this time around, Hall is hoping for a more memorable match against Morecambe.

And he is also desperate to be handed a recall as third-placed Southend bid to bounce back from Tuesday’s 2-0 reverse at Aldershot.

“We need to get back to winning ways and of course I want to play,” said Hall, who has been on the bench for Blues’ last three matches.

“The manager has said he may be making changes so hopefully I’ll get a chance, and whatever happens, it won’t be as eventful as the game at Morecambe last year."
