Bury’s League 1 season continued with a defeat against Southend at Roots Hall on Friday.

A chance to be there or thereabout in the play-off places at Christmas was missed by Bury with the Shakers slipping to a four-one defeat at Southend who climb above the Shakers into 7th.

Noel Hunt’s brace in the first half saw Bury given hope a couple of minutes before the break when Leon Clarke got one back but a Dave Mooney penalty 15-mintues from time was swiftly followed up by a Jack Payne goal to secure the Southend win.

These games kicked-off with a cracking four-one win for Southend against play-off rivals Bury at Roots Hall on Friday.

Blackpool pulled off a fine two-nil win over another promotion chasing Peterborough, who have been free-scoring but couldn’t find the back of the net against the Tangerines who won at Bloomfield Road.

A reaction was something Gillingham wanted and a reaction was certainly something they saw! Thrashed three-nil by league leaders Burton (who, as we know, drew three-three with Doncaster at the Pirelli Stadium) a week before the Gills won three-nil at Millwall on Saturday.
