Corr: Getting back to my best

25 February 2013

Barry Corr pleased to have got his tenth of the season

Barry Corr believes he has returned to full fitness and is hopeful he can continue to impress at Barnet on Tuesday night.

Corr bagged his second goal in two games and his tenth of the season in the 2-1 win at Wycombe on Saturday, and the striker believes he has finally recovered from the knee injury that kept him out for 18 months.

Ironically, the first game Barry missed because of that injury was against Wycombe back in May 2011, but he now believes he is back to his best.

He said: “I’m pleased to have got ten goals so far this season as I’ve only started 13 games I think so it’s quite a good record.

“I was delighted to get my tenth goal of the campaign on Saturday because it was an important win for the team.

“It was nice to come back here to Adams Park and get a goal in the win after this was the place I missed because of my knee injury.

“I do think I’m back to full fitness now, when I first started playing this season my knee wasn’t feeling great.

“However it’s much better now and I would like to think that my last few performances have shown that.

“We’ve played a lot of games over the last few weeks and I’ve had a big part to play in most of them so hopefully that will be the case again on Tuesday night.”

Corr was also delighted for strike partner Britt Assombalonga who has been without a goal since November, and he believes both he and the Watford loanee are starting to show some promise when paired together.

He added: “Britt was quality on Saturday and played a very big part in the win, not just with the winning goal that he got.

“He deserved that and I’m really pleased for him. I know what this will do for his confidence so hopefully he can get a few more now and we can get more good results.

“I think over the last few weeks we’ve started to link up pretty well and create lots of chances.

“Thankfully we took them on Saturday and hopefully there will be more of that against Barnet on Tuesday night.”
