Blues’ troubles in the league continued as they suffered a fourth successive league defeat after losing 2-1 to struggling AFC Wimbledon at The Cherry Red Records Stadium...
Spirits had been lifted by Southend’s midweek Emirates FA Cup win and they went in front early on against the Dons when Stephen Hendrie’s cross was turned into his own net by Liam Trotter.
The creator of Blues’ goal though would end up turning the ball into his own net in first-half stoppage time, inadvertently heading Scott Wagstaff’s cross beyond Mark Oxley.
And it was another wide ball that was Southend’s undoing in the second-half as Mitch Pinnock’s cross from the right floated all the way through and into the back of the net to win it for the Dons.
Defeat leaves Blues without so much as a point in the league so far in November, with Scunthorpe the visitors to Roots Hall on Tuesday.
