Hurst: Partnerships all over the pitch

17 October 2013

Midfielder is confident Blues can make it three wins in a row against Fleetwood Town

Kevan Hurst says Blues are starting to form positive partnerships all over the pitch, and believes Southend United can make it three league wins in a row on Friday night.

The 28-year-old says he is starting to gain a much better understanding with right-back John White and is confident the same is happening throughout the team.

He also believes that understanding can help them beat Fleetwood Town at Roots Hall on Friday night.

“The new formation seems to be suiting me. I’ve linked up well with Will Atkinson who comes out to the right to cover me and I tuck into the middle,” he said.

“It’s all about partnerships and over the last couple of games I’ve sensed that they are really starting to form and that can only help us out on the pitch.

“I missed the start of the season of course so John White and I are still getting used to each other’s game, but we seem to be linking up well and it can only continue to improve.” 

Despite suffering slightly at home in recent weeks, Hurst says the two upcoming home games provide Blues with a great chance to not let what happened last season, happen again.

He said: “We’ve had two really good results on the road and it’s now time to make sure we get three points at home. I know last season our home form let us down.

“We don’t want that to happen again and with two home games coming up in a row it gives us a really good chance to pick up some positives results and extend our unbeaten run.

“It’s difficult to explain why we seem to do better on the road, but our performances have been good. Personally it would be nice to add to the two goals I’ve already got at Roots Hall. I’ve not had an assist yet so that would be nice too, but the most important thing is a win.

“I spoke to Ryan Cresswell a bit earlier in the week and he told me to leave my assists at home, but that certainly won’t be happening and hopefully I can help us get a positive result.”
