Southend United 4-0 Hereford

Southend 4-0 Hereford

Southend 4-0 Hereford

Barry Corr and Harry Crawford bagged a brace each to give Southend's play-off hopes a boost as struggling Hereford were well beaten at Roots Hall.

Substitute Crawford put the Shrimpers ahead when he looped home the first just 10 minutes from the break.

Corr then side-footed home from close range, before heading in two minutes later to double his tally.

Crawford got his second with a penalty after Bulls midfielder Joe Colbeck was sent off deep into injury time.

Southend moved to within four points of the League Two play-off pack.

Hereford, by contrast, drop to 21st, still six points clear of danger as their five-match winning run away from home was brought to an abrupt end.

After coming on for the injured Johnny Herd, striker Crawford put Southend ahead when Joe Heath's attempted clearance fell to him and he looped over Bulls keeper Adam Bartlett from six yards.

Corr doubled the advantage after Bartlett parried Lee Sawyer's shot from inside the box into the Irishman's path. Then he arrived at the far post to bury the Bulls by heading home Sean Clohessy's right-wing free-kick.

Crawford wrapped up the scoring from the spot after Colbeck's professional foul on Sean Clohessy, which saw the midfielder sent off.


Hereford manager Jamie Pitman told BBC Hereford and Worcester:

"If you make silly mistakes like we did throughout the course of the game you will get punished.

"We just laid down and died once the second one went in.

"We never looked like we were going to get anything out of the game in the second half."
