Phil Brown: It's two points dropped to Wycombe Wanderers

7 March 2015

Boss frustrated to not take chances in 2-2 draw against the Chairboys.

Southend United manager Phil Brown reflected on 'two points dropped' against Wycombe Wanderers following a 2-2 home draw at Roots Hall.

Barry Corr scored twice – one goal in each half - against the Chairboys but Alfie Mawson's equaliser with five minutes of normal play remaining earned Gareth Ainsworth's side an undeserved point.

“It's two points dropped,” the boss said ruefully.

“By far and above, the quality of our play was better than Wycombe. We've thrown away two points.

“It's a real waste. It's poor play and poor management. We've conceded two goals and thrown points away. We should be walking away with four, five or even six goals.

“Look at their first goal. We haven't scored one of those goals all season. When we have chances like we had today – from Joe Pigott, Myles Weston Kevan Hurst – we have to put them away.

“What an absolute waste of time to not get the three points today.

“When we got beat 4-1 at their place I think it was the worst I felt. We had an opportunity to have a go today with two wingers – Kevan Hurst and David Worrall – and two strikers. We gifted them a point today.”

And despite being five points off the Chairboys in third place, Brown's defiant and says his side will continue to be involved in the automatic promotion chase.

“We played Wycombe off the park today and if they go up automatically, I want to know why we don't – if that becomes the case. There are positives to take.

“There's loads of twists and turns and lots of stories to tell between now and the end of the season. We'll still have a big say in the remaining games.”
