Match Reaction: Phil Brown rues Blues' 'lady luck'

25 October 2014

Brown believes Blues aren't getting the rub of the green after draw with Bury.

It was another frustrating afternoon for Blues and their manager Phil Brown following Southend United’s 1-1 draw at home to Bury.

Barry Corr’s great finish game Blues the lead just before half time but Bury battled back and grabbed a point following Craig Jones’ equaliser after the break. 

However, controversy followed just moments later, when David Worrall – who had an excellent game – was brought down in the box by Tom Kennedy, however, referee Darren Drysdale turned the appeal down and Brown believes it was the wrong decision. 

“The lad’s in trouble, he’s the last man and he takes down David Worrall,” Brown said ruefully.

“David’s about to pull the trigger and I have no idea why a penalty isn’t given. David falls flat on his face and he has no reason to go down. He’s goal-side and past his man.” 

And Brown feels that his side are doing enough in games, but just haven’t got the rub of the green as their winless run continued in Sky Bet League Two.
“We’re not getting the lady luck at the moment. In the last five games, we should have won three of them, in my opinion.

“We’re doing a lot of good things but we just aren’t getting the luck at the moment.

“Gameplans are only good gameplans when they work. There was a good, experienced spine in our side today against a good Bury team.

“We’ll keep working and eventually, it will come."
