York City 2-3 Southend United

Southend United racked up a third consecutive win by beating struggling York City 3-2 at Bootham Crescent.

The visitors went ahead on nine minutes when Myles Weston tucked away a penalty awarded after Jack Payne had been fouled by Dave Winfield.

York went into the interval level when skipper Russell Penn headed home but Southend restored their advantage on 52 minutes through Kevan Hurst.

Payne added a third on 78 minutes before Winfield's late consolation.
