Our on-loan midfielder controlled a square pass across the edge of the box and fired home from 18 yards to cancel out the home side’s early lead, with a second half goal giving the Bees all three points.

Alex, who played the full 90 minutes, went close to doubling his personal tally when a ball in from the right just evaded him as he arrived in the six-yard box in the latter stages.

Meanwhile, Grant Hall played 90 minutes for Birmingham City as they conceded a late equaliser to draw 2-2 at home to Ipswich Town in the same division.

Shaq Coulthirst was in action for Southend United in League Two as the Shrimpers went down 1-0 at home to AFC Wimbledon, the forward playing 82 minutes, while Jordan Archer sat in reserve for Northampton Town in their 2-0 defeat at Portsmouth.
