Southend United 2-0 Colchester United

The derby is going to recent form with Southennd leading and otherwise bossing against their Essex rivals.

Simeon Akinola arrived unmarked to nod home San Hart’s tenth-minute free-kick. Then, Timothee Dieng superbly finished after Kyle Taylor had burst through and played him. In.

Colchester have enjoyed the greater possession and went close when Kwame Poku hit an upright. But Ashley Nathaniel-George and Shaun Hobson have gone close to extending Southend’s advantage.

As it stands, Southend off the bottom of the table. I’d imagine an inquest is underway i the Colchester dressing room!
