SOUTHEND United wing-back Gus Scott-Morriss felt Friday's 1-1 draw at Ebbsfleet United was a fair reflection of the game.

The Shrimpers picked up a point on their first ever competitive match at the Kuflink Stadium.

But Scott-Morriss admitted Blues did not do enough to win the game.

"We conceded a sloppy goal from our point of view but if you look at the grand scheme of things a point was probably right for the game," said Scott-Morriss.

"We were OK but we probably didn't deserve all three points with that performance but we're happy with the unbeaten run we're on and four points from two away games."

The Shrimpers triumphed 3-0 at Solihull Moors in Tuesday night's before Friday's share of the spoils in Kent.

And Scott-Morriss is remaining upbeat.

"Of course we're a little bit disappointed not to get the three points but at the same time four points from these two away games against a team in the play-offs and the best team in the league on form we'll certainly take," said Scott-Morriss.

"They were very good and I don't think we were at our best.

"Credit to them because they stuck it on us and asked us questions.

"We were professional but we couldn't stamp our authority on the game and that's what cost us."

Despite those problems, Blues were still able to take the lead with Harry Cardwell heading home a free-kick from Oli Coker.

But Scott-Morriss initially thought it was him who scored.

"I've headed it onto Cards who has headed it into the net," said Scott-Morriss.

"It was a bit embarrassing because I thought I had scored but clearly not.

"It was the perfect ball in from Cokes but maybe I'll take the assist!"

Dominic Poleon cancelled out Cardwell's header with a well-taken effort 14 minutes from time.

But the clash came amid a busy period for Blues which affected the energy levels of Kevin Maher's side.

"It's been a tough week with a lot of traffic on the way home Tuesday as well while they've had 10 days off so it was a bit cat and mouse," said Scott-Morriss.

"We tried to put in a performance but we probably didn't have the energy levels we should have."

However, Blues are back in action Boreham Wood on Monday afternoon and Scott-Morriss knows the team must be ready to give their all once again.

"Every match now someone is fighting for promotion or to stay in the league," said the 26-year-old.

"They're a tough outfit no matter what and we have to be ready to match that fight."
