Blues boss wants upturn in fortunes in the league

Paul Sturrock has urged his side to use Wednesday night’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy success as the tonic for an upturn in fortunes in League 2.

Sturrock, who was understandably delighted after Wednesday night, is confident his players will not be distracted by the prospect of playing at the national stadium.

He said: “It was a fantastic occasion, something the fans of this Club truly deserved so I was very happy for them.

“I can’t wait to go to Wembley for the first time, I’m as excited as the players but now we must focus.

“We need to get promotion to League 1 this season and we’re a little off the pace at the moment.

“It’s important we turn that round, we can use the success of Wednesday as a tonic for picking up our form in the league.

“The lads know that we need to get some wins, we’ve been unlucky in our last few games and need three points.

“I don’t think Wembley will be a distraction. It’s still some way away so now we can focus solely on the league and think about the big day out nearer the time.”

Paul is expecting a tough test against Wycombe this weekend. He added: “There’s no doubt Wycombe are a good side who have turned their season around since Gareth Ainsworth took charge.

“We know it’s going to be a difficult game but we’ve picked up some good wins away from home this season and hopefully we will do the same again on Saturday.

“We’ve still got quite a number of injuries, but the lads who have come in have done well, so we go there confident of getting something from the game.”
