Southend United manager Phil Brown: "I thought we were excellent and didn’t deserve to lose.

“The application was spot on from the lads and I thought we played really well.

“We must have created about 10 chances, four of which were clear cut.

“The keeper had one of those nights for them but our finishing also wasn’t good enough.”
