Southend midfielder Alan McCormack spoke after his side's 1-0 victory at the Weston Homes Community Stadium that team-mate Franck Moussa, who scored the only goal, was subjected to racist taunts by the home crowd.

Home supporters have now stepped forward and admitted they heard the abuse as well and have condemned the actions of a minority of supporters.

"A small section of fans on the North Stand were making racist chants and gestures towards Southend United players," one fan told the Colchester Gazette.

"One lad stood up and did a crude impersonation of a monkey."

Many other fans have come forward on internet message boards to confirm that they also heard racist abuse.
