GOAL FLASH!

Southend United 2-1 Grimsby Town

(54′ mins): The setback offered a test of Southend’s recently-discovered character – Molesley responded by throwing Terrell Egbri and Simeon Akinola into the fray in a bid to offer a greater threat. 

And within nine second-half minutes, they were back in front with a goal straight off the training ground. Sam Hart’s driven flag-kick to the edge of the box was met by Tom Clifford – the Blues defender firing low into the corner of the net – the Grimsby backline flummoxed.
