New loan signing James Alabi was sent off after just 31 minutes of his debut, Lee Beevers also dismissed in the last minute, as nine-men Mansfield Town’s fine run of away form shuddered to a halt and the goal drought reached 428 minutes at Southend United tonight.

United also had a player sent off as the game ended nine on 10.

Alabi, signed for a month from Stoke City yesterday, was shown a straight red for his challenge on Luke Prosser to start the rot.

Beevers joined him for a second bookable offence just before the end of a disappointing night in the Essex rain.
