Corr wants to end season on a high

26 April 2013

Having made his long awaited comeback this season, Barry wants to end the campaign with a win

Barry Corr wants to end his comeback season with a win against Morecambe at Roots Hall on Saturday in the final game of the 2012/13 campaign.

Corr missed the entire 2011-12 season through injury but returned in September to score the equaliser in his first game back against Exeter City, a game Blues went on to win 2-1.

Barry has gone on to score 13 goals this season and is delighted to have returned to full fitness.

He said: “It’s been a good season for me in the fact that I’m now back to full fitness. It wasn’t nice being out of the game for such a long time and it’s been great to be back playing regularly.

“I’m pleased with how I’ve performed this season but we are disappointed that we’re not going into the final game of the season with something to play for.

“We have let ourselves with poor results over the course of the season and that’s cost us. Our aim now is to win the final game against Morecambe on Saturday to give the fans, who have been fantastic, something to cheer about.

“If we can win the final game it’ll make the fans leave happy going into the summer and hopefully they’ll then be looking forward to the start of the new season.”

Neither side have anything to play for in terms of league position, but Barry is still expecting a tough test against a side Blues have never beaten.

“They are a good side,” said Barry. “It’s going to be a tough game but we’ll be going all out to win the game because as I say it’s important we end the season with a win.

“Despite neither us or Morecambe having anything to play for it will still be a good game of football, sometimes when there’s nothing to play for, sides go for it a bit more so it should be an open game.”

The striker is also pleased to have played regularly since new boss Phil Brown has come in. He added: “I’ve started in four games in a row now and got a couple of goals which is great. I’ve enjoyed working with the manager and I’m sure there’s more to come.

“I’m looking forward to having a full pre-season – it took me some time when I returned to get back sharp because I was out for a long time.

“I will have a couple of weeks off after the season but then start my pre-season programme in the hope of returning even stronger next season.”
