Southend manager Chris Powell said:

We had the better of the opportunities. It was a brave goal by Stephen Humphrys, and we definitely had the opportunities but it’s about composure in the final third. We are creating chances now, but you’ve got to take them when you come to somewhere like Accrington. Not too many teams get points or results here, that’s for certain, but we look on it as a missed opportunity really.

They had opportunities, don’t get me wrong, but we definitely had the better ones and it’s about confidence and composure in front of goal. It’s something you replicate in training, but you have to do it on game day and that’s the most important time.

Sam Mantom put in some brilliant balls from the wide areas but, as far as I’m concerned, you’ve got to get on the end of them. The opportunities we had, we didn’t hit the target, we didn’t work them enough and then we had the Sam Mantom possible penalty. You try and be honest and stay on your feet and you don’t get any rewards, that’s just how it is.
