Kevan Hurst praised supporters, and the team spirit, following the win against Cheltenham Town

Kevan Hurst was full of praise for Southend United’s fans, and the team spirit at the club, following Saturday’s comeback win against Cheltenham Town.

471 Blues fans made the journey to the Abbey Business Stadium for Saturday’s game, and were in fine voice throughout.

Hurst was extremely grateful for the terrific support, and said it helped Blues get over the winning line.

“The fans were great. The support they show week in week out home and away is fantastic,” he said.

“They really do make a difference. They helped us get over the winning line. It’s a tough place to come.

“They were noisy throughout and kept backing us the whole way through the game.

“We can’t thank them enough for their tremendous support. They are a credit to the club.”

Hurst lifted the ball over Robins goalkeeper Scott Brown to hand Blues all three points, and ran to the bench in celebration.

The midfielder revealed he wanted to share the moment with the lads on the bench, who are working hard to get themselves in the team.

He said: “The adrenaline was pumping when I scored the goal. I always enjoy finding the back of the net.

“I wanted to share the moment with the players on the bench, so that’s why I ran over there.

“We’re such a tight knit group, there’s a great set of lads here and I wanted them to be able to celebrate the goal.”
