On This Day: 5th September

5 September 2017

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


Halifax 0-1 Southend

A single goal late into the second half was all that Blues needed to see off the home side.

The first half saw little action with only two shots on target out of two for Southend, both coming from Alan Rogers.

Roy McDonough was Blues goal scorer with a late goal coming from a cross which the striker headed down and into the net.



Southend 3-0 Rotherham

Goals in the first and second half earned Alvin Martin’s side a comfortable win.

Rob Newman opened the scoring on the 22nd minute putting Blues in a comfortable position heading into the second half.

Trevor Fitzpatrick scored on the 80th minute mark and just three minutes later he scored his second giving Blues three goals and three points.



Southend 2-1 Peterborough 

A late goal from Peterborough denied Blues a clean sheet after an impressive performance.

Adam Barrett opened the scoring 32 minutes into the first half after scrambling for the ball in the box.

Noel Hunt scored Blues second which came from a Ben Coker free kick that swung into the box for Hunt to head the ball home.

Marcus Maddison scored Peterborough’s goal in the 90th minute to finish the game.
