Sturrock: Let's travel in force

7 January 2013

Paul hopes to have your support for our next three away matches

Paul Sturrock has asked for your support on the road as Blues face three tough away trips that could shape their season.

The trio of matches on the road begins with a visit to the Kassam Stadium to take on Oxford United in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy southern area semi-final on Tuesday night, kick-off 7:45pm.

That is then followed by another tough assignment, this time against Exeter City in League 2 – a side who moved above Blues in the table thanks to their win at York on Saturday.

Then, it’s the FA Cup replay against Brentford and with the incentive of playing European Champions Chelsea in the next round, Paul and the boys will need all your support at Griffin Park.

Paul said: “We’ve got three huge games coming up. At the moment we’re only focusing on the game against Oxford, but all three games are going to be very tough.

“Your support on the road throughout the season so far has been absolutely fantastic and I’ve no doubt we’ve picked up so many points largely down to you.

“The players really respond and hopefully they can do exactly the same in the next three matches.

“With the lure of Wembley and Chelsea, the two Cup matches are going to be huge for Southend United – it would be brilliant to have you there with us cheering the team on.

“As I’ve said, the support on the road has been terrific. We understand it’s a tough time of year for everyone but we would massively appreciate your support over the next week.”
