Mark Oxley’s stoppage-time penalty save helped Southend United record a third straight win as they shaded Blackpool at Roots Hall.Southend went in front after just five minutes when Stephen McLaughlin’s left-wing corner was half-volleyed home at the near post by Anthony Wordsworth.Blackpool came close to equalising when Kyle Vassell’s shot was tipped on to the post by Oxley, but the Shrimpers went further in front when Simon Cox capitalised on a poor attempted clearance from Curtis Tilt to volley home.

Blackpool got back in the game when Vassell latched on to Jimmy Ryan’s long ball forward to round Oxley and score.And the visitors piled on the pressure late on with Clark Robertson having a header cleared off the line by Jason Demetriou before Oxley dived to his left to keep out Ryan’s penalty.Match report supplied by the Press AssociationLine-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsSouthend1Oxley24Demetriou5Ferdinand27Kyprianou8TimlinBooked at 71mins44Wright18LeonardBooked at 31mins4Wordsworth11McLaughlinSubstituted forWhiteat 73’minutes10CoxSubstituted forRobinsonat 79’minutes50RangerSubstituted forFortunéat 62’minutesSubstitutes2Hendrie9Fortuné13Bishop16Yearwood17McGlashan31Robinson48WhiteBlackpool26Allsop20Turton16Tilt5Robertson23Daniel14Ryan8D’AlmeidaSubstituted forCookeat 68’minutes15Longstaff17Solomon-OtaborSubstituted forAimsonat 54’minutes7VassellSubstituted forQuigleyat 81’minutes30DelfounesoSubstitutes1Williams2Mellor3Taylor6Aimson10Clayton24Cooke27QuigleyReferee:John BrooksAttendance:6,688Match StatsHome TeamSouthendAway TeamBlackpoolPossessionHome52%Away48%ShotsHome10Away16Shots on TargetHome4Away7CornersHome3Away12FoulsHome19Away15Live TextPosted at Match ends, Southend United 2, Blackpool 1.Full TimePosted at 90’+5′ Second Half ends, Southend United 2, Blackpool 1.Posted at 90’+5′ (Southend United) wins a free kick in the defensive half.Posted at 90’+5′ Foul by Scott Quigley (Blackpool).Posted at 90’+4′ Corner, Blackpool.
