John Egan on his wonder strike and Saturday's game against Bury
Defender John Egan is aware he has set the standard pretty high after his stunning goal on Tuesday, but would love a clean sheet or score a tap in just as much if it helps Blues get back to winning ways on Saturday.
Bury are the visitors to Roots Hall this weekend, and after his wonder strike against Scunthorpe United helped Blues earn a draw, Egan believes a lot can be taken from the fightback.
But he’s now determined to pick up his first win since joining on loan from Premier League side Sunderland.
He said: “I’ve had a lot of messages from friends and family about the goal, and realise I’ve set quite a high standard now!
“It was my first ever senior goal so I will always remember it anyway, but it was a nice goal so I’ll remember it even better now.
“But all goals count the same, and the most important thing was that goal helped us get back into the game against Scunthorpe.
“I’d be just as happy with a clean sheet, or a tap in, on Saturday against Bury to help the team get the win we really want.
“We showed a lot of character and belief on Tuesday night and we’ve got to have more of that on Saturday.”
Bury have been in good form themselves, and with the table so tight, Egan has highlighted the importance of Saturday’s game.
With three games under his belt with Blues, he adds that’s he’s been delighted with how things have gone so far, but is now after that first win.
He said: “It will be a tough game, but then every game in this division is at this time of the season.
“They will be going for it as well as they are in good form, but we’re going for the win, and it’ll be a very important one.
“The league is very tight at the moment and the three points would be massive in terms of pushing us on again.
“I’ve loved my time here so far, everyone has been great with me, but I’m really keen to get that first win since joining.”
