PORT VALE 0
DIRE defending enabled Southend centre-half Mark Phillips and striker Liam Dickinson to give the hosts a 2-0 lead with first-half headed goals.
Vale showed few signs of recovery after the break, before defender Gareth Owen converted a cross into his own net with a finish worthy of a Premier League striker.

WHO WE'D LIKE TO SIGN
Britt Assombalonga: Who wouldn't want a striker with that name in their side?
WHO TO BOO
Marc Laird: The Scottish midfielder is currently on loan from Leyton Orient and had a similar temporary sojourn at Vale in the 2007/08 season.
MAN IN THE MIDDLE
Gavin Ward (Surrey): Took charge of Vale in last season's 2-1 success at Northampton.
Southend: Smith, Clohesy, Barker, Phillips, Cresswell, Tomlin, Laird, Woodyard, Assombalonga, Corr, Hurst.
Port Vale: Neal, Yates, McDonald, Davis, Loft, Myrie-Williams, Burge, Shuker, Vincent, Williamson, Pope.
Gavin Tomlin and Britt Assombalonga put Southend 2-0 up, but Tom Pope and Jennison Myrie-Williams reply to earn Vale a deserved 2-2 draw on the Essex coast.
