Southend   1 - 0   Rotherham

Southend 1-0 Rotherham

Southend 1-0 Rotherham

Blair Sturrock's early goal gave Southend a first league win in three, at the expense of Rotherham.

Sturrock gave the home side the lead when he chested home a cross from Josh Simpson that went in off the post.

Nicky Law and Ryan Taylor both went close for the visitors, while Anthony Grant went close for the hosts.

Barry Corr could only shoot wide after Sturrock's deflected shot came back off the bar before Kevin Ellison headed straight at Southend's Glenn Morris.


Southend United manager Paul Sturrock told BBC Essex:
"Well after three defeats, the Chesterfield game we should have taken something and also the Bury match with the chances.

"It could have gone from bad to worse, but the players responded properly.

"We were playing a very difficult team today, with their long throws and the way they like to play the game."

Rotherham United Ronnie Moore told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"Probably the worst we've been all season.

"Some of the effort from some of the players today, we won't have it. It's unacceptable

"We've not passed it and played too many long balls"
