Hammer vs. Hammer

Filed: Sunday, 17th January 2016
By: Staff Writer

West Ham's on-loan full back Stephen Hendrie marked his debut for League One Southend United with a creditable draw.

The Scottish full back played his first competitive 90 minutes of the season at London Road as the Shrimpers hung on to record a goalless draw against one of the division's form teams.

And that was to the considerable detriment of fellow Hammer Martin Samuelsen, who is on a season-long loan at the Posh and also played the full 90 minutes.

Hendrie's new side went into the game having conceded 11 goals in their last three League One outings, so keeping a clean sheet was considered a success - even though it wasn't enough to take all three points.

And it was also the first time that Samuelsen and his team mates have failed to score at home this season - although they had a golden opportunity to grab a win from the spot only to see Chris Forrester's last-gasp penalty saved by former West Ham target Daniel Bentley.

Samuelsen has been in a rich vein of form for his current club in recent weeks, having scored two worldys in successive games against Sheffield United and Preston North End.

Hendrie is on loan at Roots Hall for a month, although that may be extended should Southend wish to retain the 21-year-old's services beyond that.
