A look back at some games that occurred on this day in Blues history


Peterborough 1-1 Southend

An opening goal from Simon Coleman was cancelled out two-minutes later to give both sides a point from the game.

It wasn’t until the second half that the game saw any significant action with Coleman scoring in the 50th minute.

But the home side levelled thorough Jimmy Quinn with a well taken shot from 6-yards.

The latest result put Blues third in the table after three games in Division 3.


Southend 0-3 Southampton

A dominant Southampton side put three goals past Blues to knock Steve Tilson’s side out of the Carling Cup in the first round.

Two goals before half time from Dexter Blackstock and Nathan Dyer were followed up by Brett Omerod in the 89th minute to send Saints through.


Southend 0-2 Brighton

Blues lost to a dominant Brighton & Hove Albion which meant the visitors maintained their unbeaten start to the season.

Southend went down to ten men in the 63rd minute with Franck Moussa being sent off for a challenge on Adam Virgo.

Brighton’s Glenn Murray opened the scoring in the 74th minute from a free-kick and Nicky Forster rounded things off a minute before full time which put Blues seventh after three-games.
