After a 0-0 draw at Roots Hall, Southend United travelled to Maine Road to take on the might of Manchester City in the 2nd leg of their 2nd Round Littlewoods Cup battle.
 
Although losing 1-2 on the night, Southend United’s Glenn Pennyfather scored a memorable goal for the Shrimpers in front of a measly crowd of 9,373.
