Brown fuming after Shrimpers display
4:00pm Monday 2nd September 2013 in Sport
LEAGUE TWO: SOUTHEND United manager Phil Brown was left fuming with his side’s inability to defend set pieces after they sunk to a 2-1 defeat at Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday.
The Shrimpers twice conceded from dead ball situations during the first half at Adams Park.
And Brown has called on his team to immediately improve.
“I’m disappointed because we’ve let in two more goals from set pieces and we’ll be known as a soft touch if we aren’t careful,” said the Blues boss.
“That’s four goals in two games from set pieces which includes three free headers and that’s just not acceptable. “We need to be manful, stand up to the task, spill blood and get in people’s faces and we aren’t doing that.
“We didn’t put our bodies on the line either and we have to do better."
