Southend United 0 Burton Albion 1: Both managers had their say after Calvin Zola's stunning strike won the game for the Brewers. Sturrock: 'I understand why the fans booed' Sturrock told the Echo: 'Had we scored when we were on top we would've won the game. I'm very disappointed and I understand why the fans booed. Missed chances are killing us. I got the system wrong in the first half and we looked a different team when I changed it.' The S24 Report: www.southendunited-mad.co.uk Peschisolido told BBC radio Derby: "We knew we were going to have to come here and ride a storm at stages, but I think we were quite comfortable in the first half. We had the better possession but we really were tired and we had to work hard defensively. When we lost the ball, we hunted it in packs. I thought [Adam] Bolder and [John] McGrath were immense and, although we didn't show much flare going forward, defensively we did a job. I think if you're going to win games away from home, you're going to have to sacrifice a bit of your attacking flare and make sure you're solid at the back. That's what we did and that's why I was delighted with the all-round performance today - I thought it was excellent."
