Phil Brown focused on league success

Phil Brown says he is focused on Southend gaining promotion from League Two as they prepare to face his former club Hull City in the FA Cup.

The Shrimpers boss says their match against Dagenham and Redbridge on Tuesday night is a more important game, despite the motivation of managing against his former club.

Brown took charge at Hull in December 2006 and led the Tigers into the top flight for the first time in their history in 2008, before parting company with the club two years later as they battled to avoid relegation.
