Southend United manager Phil Brown: "We went in front and I’m frustrated we weren’t able to build on that.
“We didn’t work their goalkeeper enough which I maybe understood against Hull at the weekend but it’s disappointing here.
“We should have done better in a few situations but we were also denied what I felt was a stonewall penalty when Adam Thompson went down in the area.
“But in the end we also had to rely on some good saves from Daniel Bentley for us even to get a point.”
