Southend United goalkeeper Daniel Bentley: "It was another good defensive display but maybe we lacked that bit of quality in front of goal again. However we're all still working very hard and still believe we can make the play-offs this season."

2:41am

Southend United's assistant manager Dave Penney: "We're disappointed because we should've won the game. The chances were there for us in the second half and we should've got the goals to get the three points. If we had put one of them away then this would've been the perfect away performance."
