Racon Sinks Shrimpers

A fairly dull affair of few chances was recued by one piece of sublime skill by the in-form Therry Racon. He went to ground to legitamately rob Anthony Grant in midfield, before advancing to unleash an unstoppable 25 yard thunderbolt with his left foot just before the half hour mark. A real contender for goal of the seasonParkinson had fielded a strong side with Fortune and Jackson in defence in place of Dailly and Fry. Reid, Martin and McCormack joined Semedo and Racon in a five man midfield with Abbott the lone striker. Dailly was to replace Doherty at the break.Jose Semedo was more than a little fortunate not to see red in the second half. Having being booked for hauling Anthony Grant back, he caught the same player when he lunged in shortly after. Grant Hegley, who dismissed Semedo in the season's opener with Bournemouth, elected to have a final word rather than issue a second yellow. Equally sensibly, Parkinson immediately replaced the combative midfielder with Wagstaff.Nearly 1200 Addicks fans made the journey to Southend and gave the team noisy and at times over boisterous backing. Throwing toilet rolls onto the pitch and not returning the match ball led to one or two ejections.All-in-all, Parkinson's team achieved their objective and join Brentford, Bristol Rovers and Exeter in the area semi-finals

Therry Racon, sublime skill and a goal worthy of winning any match.
