Southend 2-0 AFC Wimbledon- Report

Last updated : 09 April 2012

Late double seals Shrimpers victory

Freddy Eastwood and Anthony Grant's second-half goals breathed new life into Southend's promotion ambitions as they beat AFC Wimbledon 2-0.

Paul Sturrock's men, aiming to bounce back from a 2-0 defeat to Bradford on Good Friday, left it late but scored twice in the last quarter of the game to seal an important victory.

With 70 minutes gone Luke Prosser nodded Ryan Hall's short corner back across goal and Eastwood was on hand to nod home his second goal since returning on loan from Coventry.

Eastwood then turned provider in the final minute with a pinpoint cross from the left which Grant met with a stunning long-range volley which flew past Seb Brown and into the back of the net.
