Stevenage   1 - 1   Southend

Highlights - Stevenage 1-1 Southend

Stevenage 1-1 Southend

Barry Corr's late goal earned 10-man Southend a fourth straight draw.

The former Swindon and Exeter man scored from close range following Sean Clohessy's pass after Stacy Long's goal looked like earning Stevenage victory.

Long tapped home from Michael Bostwick's pass and was then denied by Glenn Morris before the break.

Southend substitute Blair Sturrock twice went close but the Shrimpers' day was marred when Peter Gilbert was sent off for a late lunge on Jon Ashton.


Stevenage manager Graham Westley told BBC Three Counties Radio:
"I feel fortunate to come away with a point to be honest.

"In the first half they had far the better of the chances, we had a bright start, but we went ahead against the run of play.

"They had a number of opportunities to equalise and probably could have gone in with a lead at half time.

"We dug in second half and looked as if we were going to see it out."

Southend United manager Paul Sturrock told BBC Essex:

"The players have worked very hard over the last two games.

"We had a meeting after the last match and they deserved a draw.

"My goalkeeper has not had much to do."
