Southend United Do Essex Derby Double
Southend United have completed an Essex Derby double after beating Colchester United 3-0 at Roots Hall.
The game was goalless at half-time but three late goals from Anthony Wordsworth (82), captain Adam Barrett (88), and on-loan striker Sam McQueen (93) sealed the win.
Colchester United also had Alex Gilbey sent off in the first half.
It means Southend have won both games between the two side this season, having beating the Essex rivals 2-0 at the Weston Homes Community Stadium on Boxing Day.
The result leaves the Blues seventh in League One, a place outside the play-off positions on goal difference only.
The Us, meanwhile, remain rooted to the bottom of the table seven points from safety.
