Southend 2-2 Carlisle

20 March 2010 06:16
Relegation-threatened Southend overcame a two-goal deficit and having skipper Adam Barrett sent off to earn a point.Scott Dobie's low header from an Evan Horwood cross put Carlisle ahead after only six minutes, then team-mate Ben Marshall headed home from close range.

Southend reduced the deficit in the 25th minute with a low Franck Moussa shot into the corner from 18 yards.

The Belgian hit the post in advance of Barrett's headed equaliser, before the captain was shown a second yellow card.



Southend United manager Steve Tilson told BBC Essex:





"To come back from two goals down and to get ourselves back into the game was a big credit to the players.

"Then there was the disappointment of going down to 10 men with Adam [Barrett] getting sent off.

"We had to play 25 minutes, or a bit more with 10 men and probably had as many chances as they did after that time.

"So again, that's a credit to the lads and they haven't given up."
