Southend United 0-1 Carlisle United
A disasterous opening 45 minutes for the home side.
Carlisle started brightly and took the lead after 17 minutes thanks to Offrande Zanzala’s low drive efrom distance.
Blues had a chance to level the score. Simeon Akinola was tripped by Callum Guy. Unfortnately, teh former Barnet man struck his penalty poorly – Carlisle stopper, Paul Farman saving easily.
It’s a ‘must-win’ game for Southend – It’s all going wrong at the moment.
