Blackburn 1 SUFC 0 

The Mighty Shrimpers went to EEkwood Park for the first time since 1992 with Rovers top of the league despite their thrashing at Roots Hall on Day One of the season.

First half and Blues stay solid with Coxy alone up front, both sides have a chance or two, Payney comes on for Dack early doors, Graham falling over trying for a penalty. 0-0 halfo.

Second half and on 59 it’s Graham scoring at the far post. Blues refuse to roll over and it’s Burn hanging on with Coxy flattened in the box and the referee bottles the penalty decision. A late goalmouth scramble has Burn desperate and hacking off the line but they hold on for the win.

674 Blues fans, brilliant turn out.
