David Worrall's goal six minutes from time earned promoted Southend a point at Fleetwood.

Declan McManus, signed from Aberdeen in May, led a break to put Fleetwood ahead from 25 yards and Jamille Matt's header almost doubled the lead.

McManus struck the woodwork moments later but the visitors rallied late on.

In their first League One outing since 2010, they celebrated wildly when Worrall's floated ball from the left evaded everyone to nestle in the net.
