Southend United 2-2 Wycombe Wanderers

Alfie Mawson
Mawson's header ensured Wycombe remain five points clear of Southend

Alfie Mawson's late goal earned Wycombe Wanderers a draw at promotion rivals Southend after they twice came from behind at Roots Hall.

Barry Corr opened the scoring when he headed in after Matt Ingram had saved Joe Pigott's attempt.

Steven Craig made it 1-1 at half-time when he diverted Sam Wood's volley into the net.

Corr then fired his second from close range to put Southend back in front before Mawson headed in late on.

Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth told BBC Three Counties Radio:

Gareth Ainsworth: Wycombe boss on Southend draw

"Lets be honest, I thought Southend probably had the edge today, but I haven't had to say that too many times this season.

"We don't know when we're beat and the fans don't know when we're beat. It was great to see us dig in and get the equaliser.

"It's a fantastic point, not many teams will come here at this stage in the season and take something away from Southend. They're a good, big side."
