Southend miss a chance and Luton deal with trouble off the pitch, writes Jason Tomas
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. But Leeds snatched an equaliser two minutes from the end - a goal that put the Shrimpers back in the relegation zone. The player who had put Southend in the driving seat was Mark Gower. That goal came very much against the run of play and moments later Freddy Eastwood came agonisingly close to making it 2-0 with a shot that hit a post. Southend, though, were forced back in the second half and Leeds' increasingly desperate pressure finally paid off with a goal for David Healy.
