Match Gallery: Dover Athletic

11 November 2019

Southend United fell at the First Round stage of the Emirates FA Cup after Ruel Sotiriou’s late strike condemned Blues to a 1-0 defeat against Dover Athletic at the Crabble Athletic Ground.

After a first-half which saw clear chances at a premium, the home side would belie their position of 12th in the National League to look the most threatening of the two sides.

And after sub, Nassim L’Ghoul had gone closest with a header straight at Nathan Bishop, another sub, Sotiriou would put the non-league side into Monday night’s draw with a goal six minutes from time.

The final whistle drew huge cheers from the home side who’d beaten a tier-three side for the first time while defeat for Blues piled more misery on Sol Campbell’s side.
