Corr: Back in the side and the goals

31 December 2013

Striker Barry Corr hopes to be back in the side and back among the goals against Portsmouth

Barry Corr is hoping for a return to the side and a return to the goals when Blues face Portsmouth on Wednesday.

Corr’s last goal came in the reverse fixture at Fratton Park back in November, when his goal sealed a 2-1 comeback win.

The striker hasn’t scored since then, despite playing a key role, and was left on the bench for Sunday’s trip to Accrington Stanley.

But he hopes to be back involved against Pompey, saying: “Obviously there’s a lot of games to be played over this period.

“So sometimes it’s nice to come out of the side and have a rest but Cauley (Woodrow) has made an impact in the last few games so deserved a chance.

“Obviously Freddy and I were able to come off the bench and make an impact in the game against Accrington.

“We had a few chances to win the game but it was nice to be able to help the team get a point.

“Obviously the goals aren’t coming at the moment so it’d be nice to get back among the goals against Portsmouth.

“As a striker it’s goals that give the confidence and maybe my confidence is a bit low, but I’m still getting the chances.

“A goal for a striker can make the difference between a 6 and an 8 in the ratings after a game. Hopefully once I get one they’ll start to flow.”

Corr is expecting a tough test against Pompey under their new manager Richie Barker.

He said: “They’ve had quite a few changes since we beat them 2-1 at their place and I’m expecting a tough game.

“We’ve beaten them once already and it’d be nice to do the double over them because they are a big club.

“You’d expect them to start picking up between now and the end of the season but hopefully that won’t start until after our game against them.”
