Sturrock: We showed real character

23 February 2013

Paul Sturrock impressed with efforts of his side

Paul Sturrock was delighted with the effort of his side as they came from behind to score two second-half goals and win 2-1 at Wycombe Wanderers.

After sealing a trip to Wembley on Wednesday night, Blues may have been forgiven for not being at the races today, but that was far from the case as Barry Corr and Britt Assombalonga both scored to earn Blues a big three points.

And Sturrock was understandably impressed.

He said: "I was thoroughly impressed with the work rate and endeavour that the boys have shown today, they worked extremely hard.

"We didn't get off to the best of starts and it was probably a case of being just 48 hours after Wednesday.

"But we came in at half-time, changed a few things and were much better after the break.

"I am delighted because we've shown real character today. To score twice in the second-half, come from behind, and then hang on is fantastic.

"It's a big three points because we needed to get back on the rails in the league.

"Britt has worked extremely hard without reward in recent weeks, but scored an excellent goal today.

"You could tell how much it meant to him and the rest of the team when that goal went in.

"We've got to use this win today as a platform and really kick on against Barnet on Tuesday night."

Blues could be without Chris Barker for that game after he limped off in the first-half.

"He has done his achilles this time, not his calf, so we will have to assess him on Monday morning," Sturrock added.

"Ryan Leonard and Ben Reeves also picked up knocks so we will have to see how they are on Monday too."
