Corr: Let's begin a late surge

Corr wants a win at Rotherham to get Blues back on track

Barry Corr believes a victory against Rotherham on Saturday will be the perfect way to ignite a late surge up the table into the play-off positions.

Corr says everyone in the team was bitterly disappointed after Tuesday night’s defeat to Barnet – and that the whole team is confident they can get back to winning ways at Roots Hall this weekend.

The striker believes a win against one of the in-form sides in League 2 will go a long way to proving they are still very much in contention for promotion.

Speaking to Blues Player, Barry said: “The lads were very disappointed after Tuesday night we just never played to the standards that we know we can achieve.

“We have to credit Barnet, they played well and we didn’t. A few words were said on Wednesday when we were all in training.

“We will work hard for the next couple of days in preparation for the game against Rotherham and really give it everything we’ve got.

“It’s a massive game because I think a win will show people that we are still in business and are good enough to get promoted.

“I think a win would be a good kick-start for the rest of the season and if we can do that I’m sure we will have a late surge up the table.

“They are on a good run and it’s important that we get a win under our belts to make sure we stay in and around the play-offs.”

Barry again played 90 minutes on Tuesday night and says if someone had said a year ago he’d be playing three games in six days, he’d have laughed at them.

He added: “I think if you had asked anyone a year ago if I would have been playing three games in less than a week they’d have said no way.

“I’m not back to full fitness yet but I’m getting close, I didn’t have a pre-season so I’m still building my fitness up as best I can.

“Hopefully I can play a big role on Saturday again and help the team get an important win.”
