Half-time at Roots Hall Stadium

Southend United 1-0 Morecambe

Blues ahead at the break thanks to an ealy own-goal by Morecambe’s Liam Gibson.

The Shrimps full-back nodded into his own net after Brandon Goodship’s initial effort had hit the underside of the bar.

Morecambe have created the better chances since the goal, but are yet to test Mark Oxley in what has otherwise been a poor advert for Sky Bet League Two football.
