Southend United striker Noel Hunt has described Saturday's home loss to Shrewsbury Town as "baffling".

The 32-year-old, who signed for the League One club in August, said the defeat was hard to take after the win over Peterborough United previously.

"We're all a bit baffled," said Hunt. "Last week we won and we were up in the skies and now we're down in the dumps.

"We were below par as a team. I think the only one to come out with pass marks today was Dan Bentley in goal."

He continued: "We've got a big squad now so we won't get away with performances like that."
