Brown cannot believe luck

Southend manager Phil Brown was left ruing his side's bad luck following their 1-1 draw against Wycombe at Roots Hall.

The seventh-placed Shrimpers, who opened the scoring through Barry Corr, have now not won in nine games after being held by the Chairboys.

But Brown felt the manner of Wycombe's equaliser - which came when Paris Cowan Hall's shot hit the crossbar before hitting Southend goalkeeper Daniel Bentley and rolling back in to the net - summed up his team's bad luck.

"Their goal was just remarkable and it's just the way things are going for us at the moment it seems," said Brown.

"We got ourselves in front and weren't looking in any danger until Wycombe get a break like that.

"Daniel Bentley is despondent about what happened but it's not his fault at all. It was just very bad luck and it made for a frustrating day.

"Quite frankly some of Wycombe's tactics and how long they took to take goal kicks and throw-ins was embarrassing.

"I mentioned it to the fourth official and he told me the only way to speed up the game was to score a goal.

"Our run without a win has now got longer but we will continue to work hard to turn things around and I think getting that one win will change everything for us."
