Match ends, Cambridge United 0, Southend United 1.
Barry Corr's second-half header was enough for Southend to strengthen their place in the League Two play-off spots with victory over Cambridge United.
Corr headed past Chris Dunn from David Worrall's cross in the 57th minute, and the Shrimpers could have won by more.
Ryan Leonard struck the crossbar in the first half and Kevan Hurst rattled a post after the break.
The U's, whose best chance came from the head of Josh Coulson, end a three-game unbeaten run and drop to 14th.
Phil Brown's Southend side have lost just one of their last eight league games.
