Striker hopes his goal has given boss Phil Brown something to consider
Barry Corr hopes his equalising goal that handed Blues a share of the spoils against Fleetwood Town has given boss Phil Brown something to think about.
Corr came off the substitutes’ bench to head home Britt Assombalonga’s cross and hand Blues a deserved draw against Graham Alexander’s side.
The striker, who also came off the bench against Bradford City on Friday, hopes the goal has given Brown something to consider when selecting the team to face Crewe in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final next Sunday.
He said: “Obviously the new manager has only been here a week so there’s been very little time for any of the lads to really show him what they are about.
“With the two games coming up so quick as well it made it that bit more difficult but hopefully I gave him something to think about today.
"You want to show him what you can do so I was delighted to be able to get the goal today.
“He said to me just go on and grab us a goal and thankfully I was able to do that – I think he actually asked me to score with my first touch as we had a corner,” Barry joked.
“But I managed to get one later and it was a deserved goal for the boys because I thought in the second-half we were the better team.
“On Friday I thought the lads played brilliantly, especially in the first-half, so it was a little bit frustrating that we couldn’t carry that into today.
“I thought once we had got the equaliser we might go on and win the game but the ball just didn’t seem to fall for us in the closing minutes.”
With Wembley just six days away now, Barry believes that late goal will give Blues some momentum to take into the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final.
He added: “I think it will help because it came right at the end of the game so it will give us something to build on.
“We’ve had two games under the new manager and haven’t lost so we’ve got to take all the positives from the two games into training this week.
“There’s a few days now before the final where we can really get out on the training ground, stake our claim to be in the side, and really work hard as a group.
“This week isn’t just important for the final it’s important for the rest of the season as we look to get it right for the final five games of the season.”
