GOAL FLASH!

Southend United 3-1 Grimsby Town

(75′ mins): Filipe Morais was too high, but Grimsby’s race was to be as good as run in bizarre fashion. 36-year-old Greg Halford had signed a short term deal with the Blues earlier in the day. The former Colchester and Sheffield United man nodded Clifford’s deep centre goalwards – the unfortunate Russell left red-faced as the ball squirmed between his legs and over the line for Southend’s third of the evening.
