Egan: We'll all be giving it everything on Saturday

Defender looks ahead to Saturday's final game against Burton Albion at Roots Hall

John Egan insists every player on the pitch on Saturday will be giving it 100 per cent to win the game, despite both sides having already secured their play-off spot.

The defender says that anyone who isn’t desperate to win and end the season on a high, probably shouldn’t be playing.

Blues will be looking to lift themselves to fifth in the table with a win against Burton Albion, and John is looking forward to the game.

He said: “It’s Saturday 3pm and as a player that’s the time you love most when you step out onto the pitch in front of all the fans.

“Everyone wants to win the game. There won’t be one person out on the pitch who doesn’t, and if there was, they are probably in the wrong job.

“We’ll treat it as every other game we’ve played in recent weeks and look to get the three points because we want to keep this form going.

“It’s been good to turn things around after that bad run and have got the play-off spot, but we just want to finish as high up the table as we can.”

That said, the Sunderland loanee insists Blues won’t mind who they face in the play-offs, and that recent form will more than likely go out of the window.

But he says Saturday provides a good opportunity for Blues to get to know Burton, ahead of a potential meeting at some stage in the play-offs.

He added: “I’ve been really pleased with how things have gone in recent weeks, but we know that goes out of the window in the play-offs.

“It’s nice to have that momentum and confidence but it is a completely different atmosphere and environment once you’re there.

“Obviously playing Fleetwood last weekend and Burton on Saturday has given us a chance to get to know both teams better.

“We felt we could have won the game last weekend, so it’d be nice to end the regular season with a victory on Saturday.”
