Sturrock: First goal was going to be winner

Southend boss Paul Sturrock saw his side fall to a 1-0 defeat at Gresty Road last night and he couldn't hide his disappointment as it pretty much ended his side's play-off charge.

Shaun Miller scored the winner on 65 minutes in a match not exactly packed with action. Southend never really looked like levelling other than a few long range efforts that Rhys Taylor covered comfortably.

It left the Shrimpers seven points off the play-off spots and without a win in five games.

Sturrock told BBC Essex:

'I think we did enough in the game that we should be disappointed.

'Obviously they're the home team and have got to do their defensive work, but we had a few half chances in the game.

'The first goal was always going to be the winner and unfortunately it was against us.

'We've got 10 games left, that's 30 points; if we win the 10 games then we go up. I can't be confident, I'm saying in the run we've been on the disappointing thing is the body count we've got and we've conceded seven in the last four games, you don't win football games when that happens.'
