Hartlepool hoped to build on the FA Cup win over East Thurrock United, Paul Murray’s first win as our new boss, when we returned to league 2 action at Southend United on Saturday but we suffered another defeat to stay rooted to the foot of the table.

Southend, who had the better of the chances throughout really, ran out 1-0 winners at Roots Hall.

We’ve often had Scott Flinders to thank over the years, more recently it’s been for keeping the scorelines more respectable, which was more of the case again on Saturday. His saves in the first half from David Worrall, Barry Corr and Kevan Hurst all made sure that we ended that half level at nil-nil.

Not even Flinders was able to do anything to keep out Worrall’s (65) drive at the end of his run to give Southend the lead around the midway point of the second half.

Charlie Wyke forced Southend ‘keeper Daniel Bentley into a save and Bradley Walker was narrowly wide with an effort but it wasn’t enough as we suffered yet another defeat as our troubles continue.
