Corr: I just love the FA Cup

5 January 2014

Barry Corr continues his fine FA Cup form with a goal in Southend United's 4-1 win against Millwall

Striker Barry Corr revealed his love for the FA Cup after he scored his ninth goal in 12 FA Cup games to help Southend United beat Millwall 4-1.

Corr set Blues on their way with a well taken header from a John White cross in the 22nd minute.

Having not found the net at Morecambe or Chesterfield in previous rounds, and having not scored since Portsmouth back in November in all competitions, the striker was delighted to be back among the goals.

He said: “There’s just something about the FA Cup because I’ve got a really good goalscoring record in it.

“I’m not really sure what it is, but I’ve always enjoyed this competition and it was great to get a goal against Millwall.

“It has been frustrating not scoring as many as I’d like but I was delighted to get one today and I was pleased with it too.

“I have given John White a bit of stick saying that he puts one good cross in then three bad ones, but the one he put in was brilliant.

“He is a really good crosser and has provided a lot of assists for the strikers so far this season.

“We played really well against Millwall and thoroughly deserved the win, we’re all excited for the next round.”

Corr was also pleased for Ryan Leonard, who rounded off the scoring in the 4-1 win, and the striker says it’s time for him to start repaying the assists.

He added: “I’ve set up all four on Lenny’s goals so far this season so I had a word with him in the changing rooms just to remind him!

“He has been brilliant so far this season and was great against Millwall, just as everyone was to be honest.

“But he has got a big future in the game. He works extremely hard, is quick and reads the game well.

“He’s still young, but he’s developing with every game, and he’s also added goals which is great for the team.”

Asked who he’d like in the fourth round, Corr said: “Manchester United away would be great, but whoever it is, we’ll look forward to it.”
