Southend did their League Two play-off hopes the power of good with victory over AFC Wimbledon.
Luke Prosser nodded Ryan Hall's short corner back across goal where Freddy Eastwood was on hand to head home the second goal of his loan spell.
Eastwood then turned provider in the final minute with a pinpoint cross from the left which Anthony Grant met with a stunning long-range volley.
With three games to play, the Shrimpers are seven points clear of eighth place.
VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM
Southend United manager Paul Sturrock told BBC Essex:
"I think the first half was a bit of a downer, the last week had taken a lot out of the players confidence wise.
"Getting the goal, you saw the change in confidence, the players all of a sudden were up two or three gears and I thought it was a quite comfortable win in the end.
"As the game unfolded and we changed a couple of positional things, and a substitution or two, it definitely worked for us.
"The players need to be appreciative that when we play at a high-tempo, most of the time we win our games here."
