Corr: Out to rediscover goalscoring form

Striker wants to get back among the goals against Bristol Rovers

Striker Barry Corr is hoping to rediscover his goalscoring touch against Bristol Rovers at Roots Hall on Friday night.

Not since the opening game of the season has Barry found the back of the net.

And having returned to the starting line-up for Bury last weekend, he’s now determined to get back among the goals.

“My start to the season hasn’t been great and I want to change that, starting with the game against Bristol Rovers,” he said.

“The red card I got at Hartlepool might have been rescinded it still set me back a bit.

“But like all strikers I put myself under pressure to score goals because that’s what we’re judged on so I want to get back among the goals again.

“I’m always confident of scoring at Roots Hall but I think I’ve only played there twice so far this season.

“Hopefully I’ll get another chance tomorrow and I get score to help us get the victory we need.”

Corr has started just one game alongside winger Kevan Hurst, and he’s hoping that they can link up again on Friday night.

He added: “When Hursty was out injured I kept on nagging him to hurry back.

“Then when he did get back in to the team it was when I was left out.

“For me he’s the best crosser of the ball in our league and that certainly suits my style and strengths.

“At the start of the season we had very good players in the team but their strengths didn’t suit mine so maybe that’s why it didn’t work as well.

“But we’re all fired up for the game tomorrow.

“We keep on saying the same things about what we need to do but we need to go out there and deliver now.”
