Parkinson Post Southend

We got back on track (again) on Friday night with a 2-1 win at Roots Hall against Southend.

Phil Parkinson knows just how important these three points were even more so by getting them after coming from behind to beat the 10-man Shrimpers and an error from Rob Elliot, Parkinson said: "It's an important three points. After losing to Brighton, it was important that we got back to winning ways and we did.

"A red card often galvanises a team and the crowd were really behind them, so it almost galvanised everyone in the stadium to get behind them, and obviously we conceded a very soft goal.

"It was uncharacteristic of Robbie because he pulled off a fantastic save just before that; it's not easy playing against 10 men, but in the second half we did it as well as can be expected.

"We passed the ball, we got the ball wide and obviously I'm delighted with the second-half performance."

Addicks goalkeeper Elliot was praised by The Addicks boss though as he more than made up for his error that wasn't proven to be more costly, Parkinson added: "I think the way he responded in the second half says it all for Robbie Elliot, and I think what was important was that the lads dug him out of a bit of a hole, as that mistake won't be as remembered now.

"If it had cost us points, then more people would be talking about it, but it will be forgotten now. After all, there's been times this season when he's earned us points, such as Southend at home when Lee Barnard had a great chance and Robbie saved it. There's been many times when he's made important saves to help us get points."

There was obviously plenty said about an incident that involved Nicky Bailey but saw The Shrimpers' Jean Francois Christophe sent off for punching the midfielder, so Parkinson spoke about this as his counterpart Steve Tilson had.

Overall though Parkinson felt we were worthy of the points and it could've been better but for some good saves but he was finally beaten by Kyel Reid who came off the bench to clinch it in injury-time. Parkinson finished by saying: "But it was, and Kyel coming on as a sub has made a huge impact.

"When you've got that pace coming off the bench when the opposition players are tired, of course you're going to cause teams problems. Waggy's [Scott Wagstaff] done it in the past and Reid's done it tonight."

Good changes made by Parkinson at the right time and they paid off.

Why Tilson is bitter against Bailey is crazy though, Christophe deserved to go for what he did to him.
Rufus
parky did things spot on today and fair play to him.
