Half-time at Roots Hall Stadium…

Southend United 0-0 Walsall

Timothee Dieng’s header against the woodwork and Caolan Lavery close-range attempt the only notable action in an otherwise insipid 45 minutes.

Both side are threatened with relegation but neither appear to have the quality to make a fist of things. And with Colchester United currently beating Tranmere Rovers, troubles continue to mount for both the Shrimpers and Saddlers.
