Half-time at Roots Hall Stadium…

Southend United 1-1 Dorking Wanderers

Sam Dalby’s goal sent Southend in level at the break, this after Zak Brunt had created the opening from the right.

Earlier, Alfie Rutherford had fired Dorking Wanderers into a fourth-minute lead. Blues had an opportunity to level from the penalty spot, but Rhys Murphy blasted over after Luke Moore had tripped James Dunne.
