GOAL FLASH!

Southend United 2-0 Wrexham

(53′ mins): Wrexham looked set to restore parity immediately after the restart – Arnold saving brilliantly from Angus Dior after Jones had fashioned a clear opening from the right. Meanwhile, Murphy was again wasteful, heading over as Blues countered through Jason Demetriou.

But when Murphy was provided with another opportunity, running on to a lavish James Dunne pass, he made no mistake from close range – Blues two ahead, not in the Hollywood script.
