Shaq Coulthirst works himself some space on the edge of the penalty area and has a low shot smothered by Luke McCormick.
 

4:34pm

Lewis Alessandr beats Ben Coker down the right hand and crosses to the far post where Reuben Reid heads home. Daniel Bentley might feel he could have saved that.

Fantastic save from Daniel Bentley as he pushes away a header from Carl McHugh
 

4:22pm

Great block from Luke Prosser stops Lewis Alessandra making it 2-0.
 

4:18pm

Well worked goal from Plymouth, down their right hand side. Luke Prosser initially too tight to his man. Kelvin Mellor then advanced in the box, past the sliding Prosser and Ryan Leonard before teeing up Lewis Alessandra who fired in to the bottom left hand corner of the net from eight yards.

The second half is underway

4:05pm

Would expect  Plymouth to give it more of a go in the second half.
 

3:51pm

Plymouth 0, Blues 0

3:51pm

Very close from Argyle, Carl McHugh's free-kick is headed inches wide of the right post by Reuben Reid.

Four minutes of added on time to be played.
 

3:45pm

Adam Thompson booked for a foul on Reuben Reid.
 

3:39pm

Blues have been passing it round quite nicely since going down to 10 men.
 

3:35pm

Great passing move sees John White free in the area but he fires a first time shot off target and Kelvin Mellor clears
 

3:30pm

Anthony O'Connor also booked for a foul on Conor Clifford
 

3:29pm

Lee Cox booked for a foul on Conor Clifford

3:27pm

Personally I thought it was a penalty but others in the press box are suggesting Adam Thompson kicked the floor before falling down.
 

3:26pm

If penalty had been given it would've been interesting to see who had taken it.
 

3:24pm

Huge penalty shout for the Shrimpers. Adam Thompson goes down inside the penalty area following a challenge from Marvin Morgan but nothing is given. Referee Brendan Malone seemed to put the whistle in his mouth and I can only imagine the linesman told him not to give it.

3:19pm

This is going to be a long afternoon for Blues here!
 

3:19pm

Blues make an immediate change with Adam Thompson coming on for Kevan Hurst

3:18pm

Cian Bolger's let-off doesn't last long. He brings Morgan down again and is sent off.

3:14pm

Cian Bolger very lucky there. Pulled Marvin Morgan's shirt but referee didn't get free-kick. He would've been sent off there.
 

3:10pm

Marvin Morgan is causing Cian Bolger problems early on. Beats him again but his left wing cross is cleared by Ben Coker.
 

3:05pm

Cian Bolger booked for foul on Marvin Morgan
 

3:03pm

Looks like 4-3-3 for Blues
 

3:01pm

The game is underway
 

2:37pm

Plymouth Argyle: McCormick, Mellor, Cox, Nelson, Alessandra, Banton, Reid, Morgan, McHugh, O'Connor, Hartley

Subs: Bittner, Purrington, Norburn, Blizzard, Harvey, Thomas & Allen

2:34pm

SOUTHEND United manager Phil Brown has made just one change to his starting line-up for this afternoon’s game at Plymouth Argyle with Will Atkinson returning in midfield.

Atkinson is likely to feature on the left flank after replacing Shaq Coulthirst but the rest of the side remains unchanged.

However, there is one alteration among the substitutes with new signing Gary Deegan coming in for Mads Ibenfeldt.

Southend United: Bentley, White, Bolger, Prosser, Coker, Hurst, Clifford, Leonard, Atkinson, Corr, Weston

Substitutes: Thompson, Worrall, Barnard, Deegan, Payne, P Smith & Coulthirst
