Phil Brown, Southend United manager: "I thought we were unrecognisable from the way we have been playing just lately. We didn't play the conditions or the opposition well enough. I want to be up in the top three or the top seven and if the players can't handle that pressure then now is the time to get out. I'm bitterly disappointed and I think 1-0 flatters us if I'm honest."
