We go again next week port vale in free fall 

I think finally "seeing a team off" comfortably in the end, even if the middle 40 mins was wobbly (and it was, no matter what the final score), will do us wonders

Especially ahead of being against a club struggling like them

It's another new achievement for this team and we are constantly learning 

Fantastic to see and great feeling

4 clean sheets in 5 now since Crellin was told to focus on Minecraft 

not just the shot stopping from Gilks. Communication and organisation is key too. Back 3 look far more comfortable and confident 

We all called it for weeks but Evatt stuck with him. Speaks volumes what a change of keeper has had, the whole team are filled with confidence

Still not finishing some great moves off and making things more comfortable. 

Possible signs of 3 games in 8 days; Santos stretching at the end for example.

Crawford frustrating again, missed Tutte, Fonz better than I've seen him, Doyle looked sharp.

Two lads on the right looking really impressive together, a pity that Jones doesn't have a left foot to balance that side, but he still does a good job.

Some credit to Southend; worked hard and made it difficult, but perhaps ran out of steam late on.

Well done, have a rest and go again.

That's the key for me - the constant talking and organisation

Perhaps we should pray for no return of crowds up here :D

Not our best performance but did enough. Southend I thought were crap 1st half. Had a couple of chances early on in 2nd half but to me, it felt like playing a team a division or 2 below us in the cup.

Did we deserve to win by 3, probably not. Are we 3 better than them - absolutely.

Won at a canter in the end without having to go above 3rd gear. A good habit to have

Looked like a knee twist/ligament job to me - hope I’m wrong and he’s back soon. I noticed that when he was down injured he pointed at the pitch a couple of times.

There’s not much give on that pitch, rock hard when you stand on it. Any coincidence we’ve had plenty of injuries over the years? To me, it needs an inch of soil on it before the pitch level
