James Dunne earns 10-man Southend a point against Torquay

James Dunne scored his second goal of the season to ensure 10-man Southend ended the Vanarama National League season with a point from a 1-1 draw with Torquay.

The visitors took the lead in added time at the end of the first half when Chiori Johnson charged down an attempted clearance before calmly dinking the ball over goalkeeper Steve Arnold.

Southend’s chances of mounting a comeback looked slim when captain Jason Demetriou was shown a straight red card in the 57th minute for a foul on Ben Wynter.

However, Harrison Neal struck the bar with a long-range effort before Dunne got the home side back on level terms in the 76th minute with a low shot into the bottom corner from the edge of the area.

The result means Southend ended the season 13th in the table, two places and eight points behind their Devon opponents.
