CONOR Clifford's low, long range strike on the stroke of half-time secured Southend United a 1-1 draw at Carlisle United this afternoon.
Southend United travelled to their farthest northern fixture to play Carlisle United. They got a point in the 1-1 stand off. Carlisle had gone one up, but Southend equalized within two minuets. This stalemate remained in the second half.
The point is fine but three points would have been better. Southend jumped up the table a few places, but many fans will be looking at the 1 point out of 5 after a 6 points from 6 start.
I'm sure Southend will keep plugging away, but a few wins would be grand as it would be wonderful if Southend could get a promotion this season.
