Mansfield still have some breathing space to make sure we stay in League 2 but another defeat was suffered at Southend, who are still pushing for automatic promotion, on Good Friday.

Two quick first half goals were enough to see Southend through to a two-nil win at Roots Hall.

Southend’s breakthrough came when Corr (21) lifted the ball over Newport loanee ‘keeper Pidgeley and then a few minutes later Atkinson (28) followed up, after a Pidgeley save, to make it two before the half hour mark.

The closest we came to making a breakthrough was Oliver’s header that hit the crossbar.

We’ve still got a six-point cushion on the bottom two, and should be safe, but the sooner we can get another win or two to make sure the better!
