Chesterfield, the National League’s leaders, returned to winning with a 2-0 victory at Woking.
The Spireites were not about to allow the Southend hosts to inflict a second upset defeat after their Saturday loss, when they suffered their first league defeat in fourteen games.
In the first period, the visitors were the ones with the most chances. James Berry made a great save on Alexis Andre and Joe Quigley scored their opening goal after 39 minutes.
Quigley had a golden opportunity to extend his team’s advantage midway through second half, but he missed it. Armando dobra sealed the win 10 minutes before the end when he tapped home a Liam Mandeville corner.
