Freddy: Players will play their part

12 September 2013

Striker says the players will play their part in helping create a special atmosphere at our first Friday night home game of the season.

Freddy Eastwood is looking forward to the return of Friday night football when Blues take on Scunthorpe United.

The striker is also hoping it will mark a return to the goals after he failed to find the back of the net on Saturday against Morecambe.

Freddy says he has fond memories of the Friday night atmosphere at Roots Hall, and can’t wait for the game as Blues look to try and put Saturday’s defeat behind them.

He said: “I haven’t played a Friday night game for a few years now, there always seems to be something a bit more special about them so I’m really looking forward to the game.

“I’m sure the atmosphere will be brilliant. Rain is expected which means we’ll be able to get the ball down and move it quicker, hopefully we can play some good football as we’ve tried to do all season.

“I’ve got a couple of goals against them in the past so hopefully I can make that three and get back to scoring ways after not getting one against Morecambe on Saturday.

“It’s important we put in a good performance. Not just for the fans but for ourselves. It’s been disappointing to lose three games and the display against Morecambe wasn’t good enough.

“We’re all determined to bounce back with a good performance and the three points. The fans can play a big part in that and I’m sure they will.”

Freddy played upfront with Cauley Woodrow on Saturday, and he’s been impressed with the youngster since he joined on loan from Fulham.

He added: “He’s a very good finisher and he’s showed that in training. Hopefully he can take that into the game against Scunthorpe.

“He’s a willing runner and if it’s him and I starting again I’m sure we can link up well together.

“It just shows you the competition for places with Barry Corr and Craig Reid both looking to start too.

“I don’t think we’ve got it 100 per cent right on the pitch since Lairdy got injured so it’s important whatever team starts on Friday gives it absolutely everything, and I’m sure they will.”
