Phil Brown says that he cannot explain how Southend United have now lost three League Two games in a row following today's clash with Morecambe.

Southend United manager Phil Brown has said that he is at a loss to explain his team's recent form after they slipped to their third straight defeat in League Two.

Kevan Hurst gave the Shrimpers the lead against Morecambe at Roots Hall, but that lasted just five minutes thanks to Andrew Fleming.

The midfielder struck again just after half time before Jack Sampson completed the scoring in the 56th minute.

"We started the season with three wins and now we've had three defeats with the same set of players so it's quite puzzling," PA quotes Brown as saying.

"If we can now win the next three again, I'll be very happy but I'm very disappointed by this display.

"The players were below par and their decision making wasn't good enough. That includes senior players who we brought back in here, but we didn't deserve anything from the game and there still wasn't enough nous in our team."

Southend are currently seventh in League Two.
