25 October 2017

A brief look back at three games that occurred on this day in years gone by...

1975

CrystalPalace 1-1 Southend

A late Palace equaliser denied Arthur Rowley’s side all three points.

Blues opened the scoring in the 38th minute when Stuart Parker nodded in Dave Cunningham’s cross.

Southend almost doubled their lead in the second half when Alan Little took a shot from long-range that just flew over the bar.

Palace left it late and got the equaliser in the 89th minute from a close-range volley following a corner.

 

2003

Macclesfield 1-2 Southend

Leon Constantine's 18-yard drive and a Jay Smith penalty helped Southend overcome Macclesfield.

Southend's penalty came after the home team's goalkeeper, Steve Wilson, barged into Duncan Jupp.

Macclesfield scored a late consolation through Colin Little, but their chances had suffered after 26 minutes when Michael Welch was sent-off.

 

2011

Barnet 0-3 Southend

Southend stretched their unbeaten run to nine games with a comfortable win over 10-man Barnet.

Ryan Hall opened the scoring when he controlled on his chest and fired home then Bilel Mohsni tapped home a second before half-time.

Barnet battled hard until defender Darren Dennehy received a second yellow card for pulling down Hall.
