Sturrock: Another difficult test

6 December 2012

Blues boss wants good run to continue at Fleetwood Town

Blues boss Paul Sturrock insists Saturday’s game with Fleetwood Town will be another big test – despite the fact they have just sacked their manager.

Paul believes Fleetwood’s players can react one of two ways come Saturday, and he expects that to be with a real positive performance.

But Paul is confident Blues can go there and pick up another impressive three points on the road.

“We’re not going there to get anything other than the three points, but we know it will be difficult,” Paul said.

“It all depends on what Fleetwood turn up, but I’d imagine they will roll their sleeves up.

“They will all want to try and impress so it’s going to be a hard, hard tussle. They have some excellent players and if they hit it off on the day they can be a real handful.

“But we will go there full of confidence because we have been excellent away from home – though we are suffering with a few injuries.”

Gavin Tomlin and Mark Phillips missed Tuesday’s JPT tie with Brentford, and Paul says both Gav and Mark will have fitness tests ahead of the game – along with a few more of Blues’ players.

“We’ve got a few niggles and knocks and we’ve now played 26 games in just a few months so it’s tough,” he said.

“Gavin and Mark will have fitness tests along with a few others while there have been a couple like John Spicer who have been suffering from a virus.

“The problem we have had is that the training conditions haven’t been great this week which hasn’t helped.

“But we will hope to have them fit because we’re on a good run and we want to keep that going.”
