A look at our previous meeting with Scunthorpe United...
Blues were enduring a difficult time of things the last time they met Scunthorpe United back in September.
Defeats to Chesterfield, Wycombe and Morecambe had come before the visit of the Iron to Roots Hall.
Despite dominating for the first hour, Chris Iwelumo’s goal was the difference as Scunthorpe left with all three points.
Ryan Leonard went close twice as well as Michael Timlin, but it was Scunthorpe who took the lead.
A deep cross from the right came through to Ben Coker, but the defender could only head back across goal where Iwelumo was on hand to head home.
Southend United – Bentley, Coker (Reid 74), Phillips, Thompson, Prosser, Atkinson, Timlin (Straker 68), Leonard, Hurst, Eastwood, Woodrow (Corr 68)
(Subs) Smith, Reid, Corr, Straker, Clifford, Payne, Auger
