Southend United took bragging rights home from Victoria Road after cruising past Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday.

Ayo Obileye cancelled out Joe Pigott’s opener, but Ryan Leonard’s volley on the stroke of half time changed the complexion of the match.

Barry Corr confirmed the points were heading back to the Seasiders when he scored from the penalty spot with seven minutes gone in the second half.

Liam O’Brien (5) – A tough afternoon for the young keeper as he struggled with his kicking and was given rough ride by away supporters. He easily could have given away penalty in first half as well.

Damian Batt (5) – Dreadful decision to put his hands up to try and block Luke Prosser’s header. He picked up a needless booking for smashing into David Worrall in first half too.

Scott Doe (5) – A rare tough day at the office for stand-in captain. He struggled to contain Pigott and Corr and let former go past him too easily for the opener.

Ayo Obileye (6) – Excellent header for equalising goal, but like most struggled to keep visitors attack under wraps.

Joe Widdowson (6) – Decent performance from left-back, but he did switch off for penalty by allowing Worrall to control and cross into box.

Luke Howell (6) – He worked hard throughout and tried to support attack as best he could, but spent more time tracking back then going forward. Man of the match.

Billy Bingham (6) – Superb delivery for equalising goal, but couldn’t help his team get hold of the match by winning midfield battle.

Andre Boucaud (5) – He lost battle with direct opponents and didn’t support Bingham as much as he could have.

Ashley Hemmings (5) – Wide man struggled against Blues captain John White and didn’t look anywhere near as threatening as usual.

Shamir Fenelon (6) – Brighton & Hove Albion loanee battled during his 56 minutes and had one shooting opportunity, but snatched at it and it didn’t trouble Daniel Bentley.

Jamie Cureton (6) – Experienced forward ran for everything and worked hard, but wasn’t given a sniff at goal.

Substitutes:

Alex Jakubiak, for Fenelon 56. (6) – An extended cameo, but couldn’t get much joy out of strong Southend defence.

Abu Ogogo, for Batt 65. (6) – Entered just past hour mark and went into midfield, but couldn’t impact proceeding.

Jodi Jones, for Howell 86.
