Hurst: Bagged a draw

Kevan Hurst's late equaliser secured Southend a 2-2 draw at home to struggling Barnet.

The Bees, who have yet to win this season, raced in to a two-goal lead at the start of the second half. But the Shrimpers were able to fight back to grab a share of the spoils.

Southend shaded the first half and were twice denied by the woodwork in the opening 45 minutes. Hurst hit a screaming 25-yard shot against the underside of the crossbar before a deflected effort from Gavin Tomlin also struck the bar.

Barnet survived the scares and opened the scoring in the 54th minute when Ricky Holmes crashed a 25-yard shot in to the top left hand corner of the net.

The Bees doubled their advantage in the 65th minute when Jake Hyde converted Holmes' left-wing cross at the near post.

Southend hit back two minutes later as Freddy Eastwood crashed home a penalty after Barry Fuller had handled the ball inside the area. And, four minutes from time, Hurst's scuffed volley secured a point for the Shrimpers.
