Corr: We're hurting as much as the fans

Barry Corr says Blues remain positive, and confident of turning things around, after poor run of form

Barry Corr says the players are hurting more than anyone, but will continue to work hard to turn this poor run of form around.

The striker, who scored in the draw against Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday, says things will turn for Blues, and is confident that can happen this weekend at Morecambe.

After a 3-0 win at the Globe Arena earlier this season in the first round of the FA Cup, Corr says Blues can take a lot of heart from that performance.

He said: “We’re the same team we were ten games ago when we were enjoying an excellent run of one defeat in 15.

“We’ve not just become a bad team. We’re still working as hard as ever to turn this form around, and I’m confident we will do that.

“People may have started to doubt us, and we’re determined to prove them wrong, which I know we’ll do in the next couple of games.

“For us as players, this is our lives and our job, and we’re hurting more than anymore at the moment with the way things have gone.

“We are working as hard as ever to turn this form around, and we genuinely have not had luck on our side in the last few weeks.

“But we’ve been to Morecambe this season and put in a really good performance, so hopefully we can produce the same kind of display on Saturday.”

Corr has found the back of the net in Blues’ last two home games, and while he says that has given him a big confidence boost, he says the team winning games is much more important.

“It’s been nice to find the back of the net again because I’ve found it tough at times this season,” he added.

“But I’ve always said the team is most important and turning this form around is more important than me finding the back of the net.

“Obviously it’d be great if I can find a winning goal to get us out of this poor run we’re on at the moment.”

Reflecting on the bad luck, Barry admits it does make it tough for the players to take when there’s not much they can do about it, but says the camp is still positive ahead of the final 12 games of the season.

He added: “You look back at the deflected strikes against Plymouth and Dagenham & Redbridge which Dan Bentley couldn’t do anything about.

“The goals that Hartlepool United and Exeter City scored were world class that were picked out of the top corner.

“Then on Saturday, you’ll be hard pushed to find a more unfortunate goal this season, so it is frustrating.

“But we’re still positive in the camp. The team spirit is great and we’re all confident of turning things around.

“A little bit of luck might help, but hard work and a positive performance will be the most important thing on Saturday afternoon.”
