Southend v Stockport

Southend 1-1 Stockport

Southend   1 - 1   Stockport

Blair Sturrock grabbed a dramatic late equaliser as Southend secured a share of the points against Stockport.

Sturrock, son of Shrimpers manager Paul, fired home from inside the area deep into injury-time.

That cancelled out George Donnelly's controversial strike which was allowed despite the assistant referee flagging for offside earlier in the move.

Boss Sturrock was sent to the stands for the closing minutes following his protests at the County goal.

With both sides relegated from League One last season, amid major financial difficulties, the clash at Roots Hall offered the opportunity for a fresh start under new managers.

Sturrock managed to register 17 new players on Friday and included nine of them in his starting XI.

Scott Spencer and Anthony Grant were the only two starters who were with the club last season.

New Stockport boss Paul Simpson included four new signings in his side and they looked to have taken all three points when Donnelly fired into the top left-hand corner from just outside the area.

That triggered a sustained protest from Southend which resulted in six minutes of stoppage-time being added on.

And Sturrock hit back to earn the Shrimpers a point in the fifth extra minute when the home side failed to clear a corner.


Southend United manager Paul Sturrock told BBC Essex:
"Everybody in this stadium saw the linesman put his flag up and he has to keep his flag up.

"If it is offside, it is offside. The referee didn't look at his linesman quick enough, his decision is making me pig sick."

Stockport County manager Paul Simpson told BBC Manchester:

"It was a mad finish to the game, it was a bit of a full blooded affair.

"Although you can't condone the reactions when you get one of their players spitting into the face of one of ours you have to accept there is going to be a reaction .

"What we've got to try and do is generate some more funds in the club, we haven't got any more money left in the budget but all we can do is work with what we've got."
