After the 1-0 away loss to Southend United, manager Danny Wilson lamented his side's inability to get themsleves an edge in a tight contest.

Defender Adam Thompson made the most of a chance in the first half after the visitors were unable to fully clear a corner, and the Shrimpers man's effort eventually decided the destination of the points.

"There was absolutely nothing in the game between the two teams," said Wilson to PlayerHD. "I thought it was a poor game, in the first half in particular, we lost a goal from a set piece and that was all both goalkeepers had to do.

"There was a lot of huffing a puffing but nothing else at all, so to lose a goal in the manner that we did was very disappointing.

"In the second half we upped the tempo a little but and got on the ball a little bit more but we didn't create enough chances. That's the disappointment because we have created chances in previous games but today we didn't create many."

One glint of positivity came in the full-back positions, with injury returns for Dion DOnohue and notably Liam O'Neil, lining up in the first team for the first time in seven months after a serious ankle injury.

"I thought for Liam in his first game in seven months, he did very well," commented Wilson on his returning right-back. "He was absolutely shattered at the end as you can imagine, but it's as needs must so we had to put the boys back in.

"It was the same with Dion, we weren't 100% sure that he'd be okay but we had to take a gamble."
