7:40pm

Southend United manager Phil Brown: "Morecambe had the nous and experience they needed to get over the line and we need to learn from that.

“We can’t play pretty football every week and harsh words have been said in the dressing room.

“In the first half we deserved something from the game but in the second we didn’t and it’s another disappointing afternoon.

“We have to do better and we will keep working hard to make sure that happens.”

4:38pm

13 minutes to go. Blues not really looking like scoring at the moment to be honest.

4:33pm

Goal came on the counter attack. Keeper threw ball out to Shaun Beeley. He charged forward, beat Conor Clifford & teed up Jack Redshaw to fire home.

4:31pm

Blues make their last change with Marc Laird coming on for Ryan Leonard, who has been Blues' best player for me today.

4:29pm

GOAL. Morecambe 2, Blues 1. Redshaw

4:27pm

Morecambe make their first change with Jack Redshaw coming on Padraig Amond.

4:22pm

Kevin Ellison volley goes just wide of the right post. Half the ground (and me) thought it had gone in.

4:21pm

Barnard to score the winner. My prediction.

4:20pm

Lee Barnard on for Will Atkinson

4:14pm

Attendance: 1, 608 with 209 from Blues

4:10pm

Padraig Amond through on goal but his low shot is blocked by Daniel Bentley.

4:05pm

The second half is underway

3:50pm

Blues looked the better team there but a defensive lapse means they're level at the break

3:49pm

Morecambe 1, Blues 1

3:48pm

25 yard shot from Ryan Leonard is tipped wide of the left post by Barry Roche. Good save.

3:47pm

Plymouth now level at Bristol Rovers, 1-1.

3:40pm

Morecambe fan in front of me keeps giving Kevan Hurst stick for looking like Joey Essex!

3:40pm

Can't quite work out how Blues haven't scored there. Kevan Hurst's left wing cross was deflected in to the path of Anthony Straker inside the six yard but he failed to control the ball. An attempted clearance from a defender then struck Barry Corr and flew wide of the left post.

3:32pm

Very sloppy from Blues. Long ball over the top. Daniel Bentley failed to claim & Kevin Ellison netted from a narrow angle.

3:30pm

Morecambe 1, Blues 1. Kevin Ellison

3:26pm

Kevan Hurst cuts in off the right flank and sends a left footed shot just over.

3:23pm

Andrew Fleming booked for a late tackle on Ryan Leonard

3:13pm

Ryan Leonard also scored here in the FA Cup and it's the perfect way to celebrate signing his new contract.

3:12pm

Kevan Hurst's left wing cross was headed in to the top left hand corner of the net by Ryan Leonard from 12 yards.

3:10pm

Morecambe 0, Blues 1. Leonard

Both teams lining up in a 4-3-3 formation today. Former Blues loanee Jack Sampson in attack for Morecambe
