Millwall 0-2 Southend United

Southend recorded their first away league win of the season with victory over Millwall.

Despite dominating the early exchanges, Millwall found themselves behind at half-time courtesy of David Mooney's close-range header.

The visitors lead was doubled moments after the break as Adam Barrett headed home Michael Timlin's cross.

Steve Morison and Shaun Williams both came close for the hosts late on but Phil Brown's side held on.

Millwall manager Neil Harris told BBC London 94.9:

"Maybe I should have freshened it up as we looked a little bit leggy at times and I think that caused a little bit of lack of quality.

"We were brilliant at Crewe, we were brilliant at Port Vale and we were really looking forward to bringing that form back here.

"We weren't quite as energetic, we weren't quite as exciting as we were in those two games and I'll have to look at the reasons why, but again there was no lack of effort."
