Southend United 3-1 Burton Albion

David Mooney scores Southend's third

Southend ensured Burton lost away from home for the second game in a row

League One leaders Burton missed the chance to go seven points clear as they were beaten at Southend.

Anthony Wordsworth gave the hosts an early lead from close range but Stuart Beavon equalised for Burton just before the break with a deflected strike.

Tyrone Barnett’s fine drive restored Southend’s advantage and David Mooney sealed the win in the last minute on the counter-attack.

Burton have now lost three of their past six matches.
