Kevan Hurst believes both sides on Saturday will be wanting to prove a point after poor form in recent weeks
Kevan Hurst says both Blues and Morecambe will have a point to prove on Saturday, following a poor run of form for both sides.
Blues’ midfielder is confident Blues can get back to winning ways on Saturday, and believes heart can be taken from the performance at the Globe Arena in the FA Cup.
With Morecambe also struggling of late, Hurst is prepared for what will be a battle as both sides look to get some momentum back in their season.
He said: “They’ve been on a poor run of form themselves recently, but I know Jim Bentley and have played with him previously.
“I know the character he is and he’ll make sure they are working as hard as ever, there’s no doubt it’s going to be a tough game.
“We can’t think anything other than that – and we won’t – but we’re confident of getting back to winning ways.
“Another performance similar to the one in the FA Cup would be great, particularly if we can get another early goal.
“We need to get that momentum back in our game so we can start kicking on again and push for promotion automatically – which is still possible if we can rediscover our form.”
Blues have lead against Exeter and Wycombe in recent weeks, but been pegged back, and Hurst believes if Blues get in front, the second goal could be crucial.
“We’ve not dropped points after having a two goal lead this season,” he added. “We’re solid defensively all the time and make it difficult.
Hurst has also been pleased to get a week on the training ground, without a midweek game, adding: “It’s been good to be able to get out on the training pitch and get in the gym.
“We can’t do that as much when we’ve got a game on a Tuesday night.
“But we’ve been working hard to make sure we’re back to what we’re capable of when we travel up to Morecambe on Saturday afternoon.”
