Southend United 1-3 Eastleigh

Southend United 1-3 Eastleigh

Southend were taken aback on their return to action after a spell of freezing weather as Eastleigh picked up an away win.

Charlie Carter forced Shrimpers goalkeeper Blondy Nna Noukeu into one of two critical errors in the 32nd minute, along with Alfie Lloyd after the ball was sent back into the danger zone.

Carter doubled the lead after the play-offs chasing Southend who struggled to clear a long throw into the box in the 72nd minute, but the hosts quickly rallied and halved the deficit when Harry Cardwell found the bottom from the net after some good work from Rhys Murphy.

But that was not to be the case as Nna Noukeu somehow allowed a speculative effort from substitute JJ McKiernan to squirm past him with four minutes to go.
