Southend   2 - 1   Oxford Utd

Southend 2-1 Oxford Utd

Southend 2-1 Oxford Utd

Southend hit back from a goal behind to leap-frog 10-man Oxford United in the League Two table.

James Constable put the visitors ahead when he converted Jake Wright's well-worked free kick.

The hosts hit back when Ryan Hall controlled and hit a half-volley into the net after an Anthony Tonkin error.

Bilel Mohsni won it when he poked home from close range, as Oxford's misery was compounded when Damien Batt saw a straight red for fouling Anthony Grant.


Southend United manager Paul Sturrock told BBC Essex:
"I think the first 15 minutes, we started a bit sluggishly, and also the system we started with didn't suit playing against their system.

"As soon as we changed to 4-4-2 we looked a much more balanced side against their system and I think we dictated the game from then on.

"A lot of things haven't gone our way here this season, so it's nice to think we're getting a wee bit of luck and the rub of the green.

"But you get luck by work rate, attitude and doing the right things."
