Hurst's Accrington premonition

9 February 2013

Kevan Hurst says he felt before the game he would get a goal at Accrington

Kevan Hurst said to himself before Blues’ game at Accrington that he was going to be on the scoresheet.

And the midfielder was certainly true to his word as he rifled home a low 25-yard drive with less than ten minutes remaining to earn Blues a vital away point.

Kevan celebrated with his family who were at the game, and he was delighted to have salvaged a point for Blues.

He said: “I sometimes just know when I’m going to score a goal. I thought I was going to get one on Tuesday but then when I didn’t I knew one would come today.

“The ball just fell to me from Marc Laird and I hit it, thankfully it found the back of the net and we were able to come away with a point.

“I think it would be fair to say that things just didn’t click for us today, especially during the first half and early in the second.

"My family were in the crowd so I ran over to them when I scored the goal.

“We only really got going after the sending off which is a bit strange really. At 1-0 down and a man down, we are pleased to be coming away with a point and ensuring we make it four games unbeaten.”

With three big games coming up for Blues, two in League 2 and one in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy, Kevan says he and the rest of the squad are only focused on the next game.

He added: “We can’t be looking to far ahead. We will reflect on this game on Monday morning and then get prepared for a big game against Cheltenham.

“We don’t look any further ahead other than the next game coming up which is Cheltenham. We seem to do well against the bigger teams so hopefully we can get a win on Tuesday night.

“I don’t think there is any tiredness among the squad, I just don’t think we turned up for most of the game against Accrington. We’ve got to make sure we’re much better on Tuesday in front of the home fans and I am sure we will be.”
