SUFC 1 Oldham 1 

The horror story continues as Blues suffered a last gasp Halloween loss against fellow strugglers Oldham. An unchanged team took the field in front of cardboard cutouts of the faithful fans.

First half and both sides have a few chances but the half ends with neither side having a shot on target, showing why they are both struggling. Halfo 0-0.

Second half and Moley’s half time team talks are becoming a thing of legend as Blues immediately concede, 0-1. Blues get back in it with a superb Clifford free kick for 1-1. Both team hit the woodwork but disaster for the Shrimpers as sloppy play leaves Oldham to streak away and score with a a minute to go for a late winner.

With HMRC calling tomorrow and Sir Ronald of Martin saying there’s no cash under the Roots Hall carpet to pay them, could things hardly be any bleaker for Southend United?
