The Shrimpers were denied a crucial victory when Johnny Mullins cancelled out Kevan Hurst's opener two minutes from time to frustrate Sturrock.

"We had the chances to win the game but we didn't take them," said the Scotsman.

"Four players should all have scored and when you consider that's against a team going for third in the table that's quite encouraging.

"But to concede like we did at the end was disappointing. We should have defended much better and in the end this feels far more like a defeat than a draw.

"We're now six points away from the play-offs but there's still about a quarter of the season to go.

"There are plenty of points to play for and many of the teams still have to play each other so there's everything still to play for.

"However, we really do need to get on a good run."

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
