Southend United 2-1 Barnsley

Luke Prosser
Luke Prosser's goal against the Tykes was his first since December 2013

Southend United came from a goal down against Barnsley to secure a sixth win in their last seven games.

The Tykes took the lead when the Shrimpers' goalkeeper Daniel Bentley brought down Marley Watkins, and Josh Scowen slotted home the penalty.

Myles Weston set up Anthony Wordsworth for the equaliser for the hosts with a crisp shot inside the area.

The comeback was complete just before half-time when defender Luke Prosser tucked home at the back post.
