Blues' boss happy with another good performance
Southend United manager Phil Brown was once again pleased with what he had seen as Blues beat Billericay Town 3-1.
All of the goals came in the first-half, as Kevan Hurst and Myles Weston (2) gave Blues a comfortable 3-0 lead, before the hosts pulled one back.
Blues' boss was happy with the performance and the work out for his side, as some players got 60 minutes under their belts.
He said: "We are very happy with the performance again. We played some good football and we scored a couple of excellent goals.
"We're not focusing on the results at all, but we can be happy with the displays we're putting in at the moment.
"It's all about building up to that game against Accrington Stanley, and we're building well.
"The lads looked sharp and got through the 60 minutes well. They'll play 30 against Spurs now.
"The ones who came on will get 60 minutes at Spurs, then we'll have a couple of days of training before Braintree Town."
Brown was once again pleased to see Weston on the scoresheet, and felt Hurst's goal showed he's looking to carry on from last term.
"Hursty took his goal superbly," Brown added. "He was excellent for us last year and you can see he wants to do the same again.
"Myles and I spoke before he joined. He said he could play as a striker so we've given him the chance and he's certainly taking it."
Brown revealed Adam Thompson missed out with a back injury, while Gavin Hoyte was the latest player to come on trial, playing the whole of the second-half.
