Charlton   1 - 0   Southend

Charlton 1-0 Southend

Charlton 1-0 Southend

Deon Burton scored his 10th goal of the season as Charlton eased past Southend to close in on the League One summit.

Burton grabbed the only goal of the game when he headed home Lloyd Sam's cross midway through the first half.

The result extended Southend's losing streak away from home to six games but helped the Addicks close the gap on league leaders Leeds to four points.

Simon Francis and James Walker came close to grabbing the elusive equaliser for Southend but had shots blocked.


Addicks boss Phil Parkinson told BBC London 94.9:

"The last two home games we've won 5-1 and 4-2 and this game certainly didn't live up to that in terms of entertainment.

"It was a scrappy old affair and we didn't play with our normal fluency, especially in possession.

"But we showed many other qualities to make sure we got the result.

"And, as the old saying in football goes, you've got to win when you don't play well. And we certainly did that today."

Shrimpers manager Steve Tilson told BBC Essex:

"Excellent performance. We deserved more than we got today.

"We've had the lion's share of play, we were the better side and they've gone away with the three points."
