Phil Brown says that Southend United gave a good account of themselves in the 2-0 defeat against Hull City.

Southend United boss Phil Brown has said that he is pleased with how his players performed against Premier League opposition in the 2-0 defeat to Hull City today.

The Shrimpers were beaten by a second-half brace by Matty Fryatt, but Brown believes that his team showed what they are capable of.

"We gave a good account of ourselves. We asked them to test themselves against top flight players and we did that," he told BBC Sport.

"At 0-0 we were in the game but the first goal on the hour mark knocked the wind out of our sails. In the end it looks comfortable for them but we threw caution to the wind and went for the equaliser."

Southend are back in League Two action on Tuesday against Dagenham & Redbridge.
