Match Preview: David Worrall wants to get one over his former side

23 October 2014

Winger Worrall wants to finish game with a smile on his face when he comes up against some old friends.

Southend United winger David Worrall is fit and firing now following a spell on the sidelines, and is looking forward to Saturday, when Blues take on one of his former sides in the form of David Flitcroft’s Bury.

Worrall scored his first goal in a Southend shirt against Exeter last Saturday but was forced to miss out the game against Newport County in midweek following a stomach bug, which has been hampering the midfielder for quite a while.

“I don’t think my immune system’s the best!” Worrall sais with a smile.

“I’m feeling better and hopefully I’ll be back in contention for Saturday with training today and tomorrow.

“You’re never sure if you’ll keep your place anyway. The Gaffer made changes to the side. I think we’ll get a better judge of where we are come Christmas time. That’s when the league begins to take shape.”

And Worrall insists the belief in the Blues squad is still there despite a frustrating set of results during the last couple of weeks.

“You go into games believing you can win and the last couple of matches we just haven’t had the rub of the green. We should have won Tuesday but they got the goal and did well to see it out.

“When I got promoted with Bury I think we went on a run of not winning in ten games or so and we ended up finishing second. We’ll be looking to stay in the top eight or so by Christmas.”

Although the 24-year-old has fond memories during his time at Gigg Lane, with a number of friends likely to be in the Shakers’ line up, Worrall wants to have the last laugh come 5pm on Saturday.

“I have a lot of good memories from my time at Bury. I want to win – if we don’t then I’ll be pulled by some of my mates who play for them at the end of the game. I want a big smile on my face after the game.

“I hope the fans give me a good reception. I did well for them there but you never know these days! I still keep in touch with a number of people up there and was one of the first fixtures I looked at when I signed for Southend.
