Struggling Shrimpers held by Glovers: Match Review

Published Add your comment

Southend remain entrenched in the relegation zone, three points from safety, following a 0-0 draw with Yeovil.

Shaun McDonald and Dean Bowditch fired over for Yeovil early on, while Gavin Tomlin brought a comfortable save from Steve Mildenhall.

Glovers goalkeeper Alex McCarthy had little trouble in dealing with a low shot from Scott Vernon, who then saw an effort cleared by Steven Caulker after a Johnny Herd throw-in had caused havoc in the Town defence.

Tomlin fired well over again after the break before Southend boss Steve Tilson made a double substitution, bringing on Francis Laurent and Matt Paterson to try to add some spark.

But it was Yeovil who went closer with Terrell Forbes seeing a shot fly inches wide of the post.

Pat Baldwin went close for Southend late on with a half-volley from Herd's corner, while, at the other end, Glovers substitute Andy Welsh forced Mildenhall into a decent save.
