Half-time at Roots Hall Stadium…

Southend United 1-0 Barrow

Blues ahead at the break thanks to Reeco Hackett-Fairchild’s terrific early left-footed strike.

Barrow have offered the crisper football, with Luke James twice denied by Mark Oxley. Meanwhile, Elvis Bwomono should have doubled Southend’s advanatge, firing directly at Barrow stopper, Joel Dixon after Timothee Dieng had sent him clear.

A big 45 minutes coming up for the home side.
