That all too familiar Southend nil-nil feeling at Roots Hall was something that Southend were on course for on Saturday against York but a late goal saw us to a one-nil win.

It’s a win that we’ll mostly admit that we’re lucky to have managed!

York had the better of the first half with Daniel Bentley pulling off a fine save to turn Luke Summerfield effort round the post with Russ Penn heading just wide with Bentley again saving to tip Jake Hyde’s effort away too.

Right on half time York were again denied, Bentley was beaten this time but Penn’s header was cleared off the line by Michael Timlin to keep it at nil-nil at half time.

Those scares were survived with Joe Pigott close to following up his winning goal against Portsmouth with a winning one again but this time York goalkeeper Bobby Olejnik denied him.

With a fourth successive nil-nil draw at home on the cards the chance to win it came when Pigott was fouled by Brad Halliday with just two-minutes to play. Shaquile Coulthirst took responsibility with the Tottenham Hotspur loanee firing home to win it.

Funny how things can chance so quickly, a fourth nil-nil draw would’ve left things looking a lot less rosy than they do with another win that means we’ve now won three League 2 games in a row.
