Comments:

League position: 7th

Comments:

League position: 3rd The Leyton goal was credited to Carl Griffiths in many reports. However, video evidence confirms that - having dropped Scott Houghton's cross - Southend keeper Darryl Flahavan inadvertently kicked the ball into his own net. Although very close to the incident, Griffiths made no contact with it.
