Corr: A real statement of intent

19 January 2014

Striker Barry Corr delighted to score against Chesterfield and help Blues send out a message to the division

Barry Corr was delighted to be able to get his second goal in as many games at Roots Hall in front of his children.

Corr scored Blues’ third in the 3-0 win against Chesterfield that sent a big statement out to the rest of the division.

And with his goalscoring touch seemingly returning, Corr was over the moon following the impressive win.

He said: “It was a really good performance. Everyone works so hard for each other and we played some excellent football.

“I really wanted to score a goal today because my kids came to watch the game and they don’t get to many.

“I was looking for them when I scored but I couldn’t see the box numbers, so I was probably waving at some random person.

“But it was great to get another goal because they haven’t been as regular as I would’ve liked so far this season.

“That’s now two goals in two home games and hopefully they will keep flowing between now and the end of the season.”

Corr believes this was a real statement of intent from Blues, as they saw off their promotion rivals in front of over 6,000 fans at Roots Hall.

He said: “There was a fantastic atmosphere at Roots Hall and all the players were really up for the game.

“We’ve shown in the last few weeks what we’re about but that was a really top performance.

“Chesterfield are a very good team but we outplayed them for most of the game and deserved the win.

“They came back into it slightly in the last 20 minutes, but we had a goalkeeper in great form who kept the clean sheet.

“We’re starting to score more goals and as a front three we’re linking up really well so there’s lots of positive signs.”
