Southend United 2-3 Burton Albion

Burton ended a run of six games without a win by taking three points at struggling Southend.

The Brewers took just five minutes to take the lead as Colin Daniels' left-wing cross found Lucas Akins at the far post and he fired home an assured volley.

Southend came close to equalising when Sam Mantom fired against the left post and he was at the centre of things when they drew level in bizarre circumstances in the 29th minute, his looping effort finding the net via a misjudged punch from Burton goalkeeper Kieran O'Hara.

Burton regained the lead in the 49th minute when Ryan Edwards bundled the ball home after Joe Powell's driven left-wing cross had been deflected towards his own goal by Joe Shaughnessy.

They went 3-1 up in the 74th minute with Nathan Broadhead latching onto a poor pass from Southend defender Miles Mitchell-Nelson before teeing up Jamie Murphy to score.

The Shrimpers netted a late consolation with John-Joe O'Toole heading Sam Barratt's long throw into his own goal.
