Morgan: Netted Aldershot's winner

Aldershot striker Marvin Morgan capitalised on some calamitous keeping from Southend's Glenn Morris to earn a 1-0 home victory.

Morgan pounced after 81 minutes when Morris failed to hold on to Antony Straker's first-time shot during a torrential downpour at the Recreation Ground.

And it was a frustrating afternoon for ex-Shots front man Louie Soares as he spurned a host of chances while his former strike-partner took the glory. Soares, who joined the Essex club in the summer, went close with two early efforts, before seeing his 26th-minute shot cleared off the line by Darren Jones.

A low effort from Morgan after 40 minutes forced a top save from Morris as the keeper got down well to tip the effort around his near post.

It was a similar story for Soares and Southend after the break as the striker got into a great position after 71 minutes, only to fire wide.

Morgan's pace had caused the Shrimpers defence problems all day and he cooly tucked home to secure the points and Aldershot's first win of the season.
