Sturrock: Another win needed

20 November 2012

Southend United chief Paul Sturrock has insisted that Saturday’s emphatic win against Torquay United will be worthless without three points tonight.

Blues travel to AFC Wimbledon following their 4-1 win against the Gulls at the weekend.

And Sturrock wants to see his side continue their momentum that has seen them go five matches undefeated.

“It was a great result and a good performance at Torquay,” Sturrock told the official website.

“But that is gone now and we have to concentrate on the match against Wimbledon.

“Saturday’s win will be pointless if we don’t now follow that up with something tonight.”

Dons, who are 20th in npower League Two, drew 1-1 with Aldershot Town on Saturday.

Southend beat them 2-1 earlier this season in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy but now under new stewardship Sturrock admitted they would be unpredictable.

“Neal Ardley has gone in there and they’ve had a mixed bag of results,” he said.

“They are obviously going to be a different prospect from the side we faced earlier in the season.

“They have a few injuries at the moment also which makes it hard to predict their side at present.”

Sturrock is expected to have both Gavin Tomlin and Chris Barker available for the trip.

The pair were both substituted at Plainmoor on Saturday with back problems but are likely to travel.

Defender Anthony Straker is also due to return this morning from international duty for Grenada although it remains to be seen if he will be included in the squad.
