SOUTHEND United boss Kevin Bond felt this afternoon’s 2-2 draw at Fleetwood Town was a fair reflection of the game.

But the new Shrimpers boss was still frustrated not to pick up all three points.

Blues twice went in front at Highbury with Harry Bunn and Luke Hyam both on target.

However, a brace from Fleetwood forward Ched Evans meant Bond had to settle for a share of the spoils in his first game in charge.

“Overall it was probably a fair result,” said Bond.

“One hundred per cent we would have taken a point before the game but it’s disappointing to draw when you’ve been in front twice.

“We did well in the first half and we deserved to be in front.

“But in the second half Fleetwood put us under pressure and we weren’t as composed as I would like us to be.”

Blues, who have now not won in 13 games, seemed to be heading for all three points when Hyam slammed home a well-struck shot 10 minutes from time.

But the Shrimpers were denied their first victory since January when Evans netted from the penalty spot after Harry Lennon had brought down Paddy Madden in the box.

“We conceded a penalty which in fairness probably did look like it was a penalty,” said Bond.

“It was tough to watch after times after that but we’ve got a point which we have to go and build on now.”
