If Phil Brown thought our automatic promotion chances had ended after the two one defeat against Burton Albion then you’d think that he’ll be one hundred percent certain after the nil nil draw with Cambridge United on Saturday. The bigger concern for us, and more so Luke Prosser, was the serious injury that our defender sustained! A continued lack of goals at Roots Hall is also a concern from a footballing viewpoint.

There weren’t too many first half chances, for either side, but our best one fell to David Worrall who would’ve expected to do better, he usually does. John White’s cross saw him volley right at Cambridge goalkeeper Chris Dunn.

Likewise former Southend striker Matt Harrold should’ve done better with Cambridge’s best chance early in the second half, from close range Harrold headed to a grateful Daniel Bentley who wasn’t troubled.

The injury to Prosser, who was treated for a long period on the pitch before being stretched off and taken to hospital, was a major concerns and not just for what’s left of our season. Neck and spinal injury are feared after he was poleaxed by Ryan Donaldson freekick. We’ll be keeping our fingers firmly crossed for positive news.

We’re now five points adrift of Wycombe Wanderers in third and they’ve got a game in hand as well so we’re looking like we’ll have to take the play off route again this season if we want to get out of League 2.
