Injury-time heartbreak for 10-man Shrimpers

Injury-time heartbreak for 10-man Shrimpers

Southend 0-1 Burton
2nd October 2012
Roots Hall

Southend were denied a draw at Roots Hall on Tuesday night by a last gasp Burton winner.

When you are forced to play virtually the entire match with 10-men it's going to be tough to get anything, and this is what Southend had to do with John Spicer shown a straight red with barely ten-minutes on the clock.

The hosts managed to hold The Brewers until injury-time at the end of the match when Jacques Maghoma (90+1) drove home a 30-yard freekick to give Burton a 1-0 win.
