Southend coast past City

Southend United 2 - 0 Bath City (FA Cup 2nd Rnd)

The underdogs of Bath City never threatened to cause an upset as they succumbed to a 2 - 0 defeat at Roots Hall. The match was certainly not one for the purists with neither side able to keep the errors out of their game.

Things did not get off to a good start for Bath as striker Francis Laurent seized on an error by Sido Jombarti to score a powerful effort. Bath were nearly gifted a goal on 60 minutes through Bondz N'Gala's lapse in concentration but they failed to capitalise on the opportunity presented to them.

Journeyman striker Dougie Freedman finally rounded off their victory on 78 minutes with a real poacher's effort.

Attendance: 4633

Always knew it would be a struggle against a Div1 team, but at least we got the cash injection from playing a well supported club. 50K extra just chopped our debt by 1/3.
