SOUTHEND United have dropped into the National League relegation zone following tonight’s matches.

The Shrimpers saw their scheduled clash with Maidenhead United at Roots Hall called off following a positive Covid test in the visitors’ squad.

And, with Aldershot Town winning 1-0 at home to Torquay, Blues are now 21st in the 23 team table.

Aldershot, who are managed by former Shrimpers boss Mark Molesley, bagged the only goal of the game five minutes from time from Lewis Kinsella firing home.

And the Shots are now two points clear of Blues who do have a game in hand.

King’s Lynn, who are immediately below the Shrimpers in the standings, lost 5-0 at Stockport County while bottom of the table Dover Athletic lost 3-2 at home to Wealdstone.
