Barry Corr: We want to make it a Christmas double

27 December 2014

Striker wants Blues to follow up their victory over Cambridge United with three points against Dagenham & Redbridge.

Southend United striker was understandably in good spirits after his solitary goal sealed a vital three points for Blues during their Boxing Day clash at Cambridge United.

Corr's header from a David Worrall cross helped Blues pick up their first win of December and the striker says he wants more, heading into the game against Dagenham & Redbridge on December 28th.

“It was a good performance, and although we probably should have seen them off by adding a few more goals, it's a big three points,” the Irishman said.

“We want to make it six points with a win against Dagenham now.

“The manager said to me at half time to be the match-winner, and I'm really pleased to get the goal that has won us the game. I should have got one in the first half – I don't know what I was doing with that one!”

The goal against Cambridge was 29-year-old Corr's fifth of the season, and the striker admits he has been 'frustrated' having scored only once from open play during the early part of the campaign.

But the forward also feels his game is improving as a whole, and not just regarding his goal tally.

“I was getting a bit frustrated at not scoring in open play. Since I scored my first of the season against Portsmouth, I have a goal average of 1:2 and I have five assists as well, so things aren't going too bad.

“We looked at the two game over this period and said that if we got six points from the games, it would put us in a good position heading into the New Year.”
