If any Championship match should have been avoided by those of a nervous disposition, it was the relegation battle between Southend and Leeds

Southend, who lifted themselves out of the relegation zone with their midweek 1-0 win over Burnley, put themselves in a strong position to improve their position further when they established a 1-0 half-time lead.
