Manager Phil Brown has said he was disappointed not to see Southend take all three points in the recent game against Coventry City, but he was pleased to see our strikers get off the mark in the two all draw.

Coventry 2-2 Southend & Highlights

Speaking to the Official Site having seen goals from Hunt and Mooney get us back on level terms and then in front in the game before they equalised, Brown said there were positives and disappointments that he took from the match.

‘You’ve got to say Coventry probably deserved a point but we should be killing teams off. We had the chances but it wasn’t to be. It sounds like we’re hanging on in the second half and we shouldn’t have been. David Mooney had a chance and John White could have burst the net as well. We put out bodies on the line and that’s every man out there. Dan Bentley produced a number of fantastic saves tonight and if anyone thinks he’s not playing for the football club then they haven’t seen his performance tonight.’

Continuing with his interview, Brown went on to say that he felt Hunt and Mooney were now ‘up and running’ and that pleased him with them both getting their first goals for the club, as it should give them that kick of confidence to go on and score more now.

‘I don’t care who gets the goals but it’s nice to see the two main men who we’ve brought in up and running. We just need Joe Pigott now, Myles Weston and Jack Payne up and running. David and Noel were a constant threat. They made changes in the second half and brought on Marcus Tudgay and changed the formation slightly. When you go 2-1 up against Coventry you know they’ll come out and keep going because they’re a good side. The honours were shared and it’s a big point for us coming away from the Ricoh.’
