Blues bring in emergency stopper from Pompey

Southend United have moved quickly to sign Portsmouth goalkeeper, Alex Bass following an injury to Mark Oxley.

The Pomey stopper arrives at Roots Hall Stadium on a seven-day emergency loan and will feature in this afternoon’s Sky Bet League Two clash with Salford City.

The 22-year-old has made 36 appearances for the Fratton Park club, including a Papa John’s Trophy tie at Roots Hall earlier in the campaign which Portsmouth won by three unanswered goals.
