Hurst eyes another Wembley visit

5 December 2012

Midfielder wants to make it fifth time lucky with the Blues

Kevan Hurst is determined to help Blues to a date at Wembley after his brilliant strike sealed the 2-1 win against Brentford on Tuesday.

Hurst has reached Wembley four times so far in his career, but has only played there once and was on the losing side – so he’s hoping to make it fifth time lucky.

And following his goal to beat Brentford to help Blues to the final four of the southern area, Hurst has his sights set on a big day out.

He said: “I could well have played there four times but I’ve only played there once so far in my career.

“The one time I played there was with Scunthorpe in the Johnstone’s Paint but we lost 2-1 to Luton.

“Then I was injured for their play-off final and I was also injured when Carlisle got there.

“I’ve not had much luck really when it comes to getting to Wembley so hopefully that can change this season.”

There was certainly no luck involved with Hurst’s excellent strike to double Blues’ lead against Brentford, and following a large number of assists, the midfielder was happy to get on the scoresheet.

“It was actually a cross,” he joked. “No, I’m happy when the team is winning and playing well.

“That’s certainly the case at the moment but it was nice to get that goal because I haven’t scored too many.

“It was a really good performance though in general from everyone tonight. The defence were superb and Paul Smith made a brilliant save right at the end.

“We’re happy to have beaten one of the in form League 1 sides and we just want to continue playing well and picking up results.”
