Interview: Myles Weston insists there's no need for panic

5 September 2014

Southend United’s Myles Weston insists there is no need to panic ahead of Saturday’s Sky Bet League 2 game against Oxford United.

Blues have not won since a 2-0 win against Stevenage on the second weekend of the campaign, but the performances have merited more in the previous few games.

The summer signing believes the squad still need time to gel but feels they are not far off becoming the finished article.

Myles said: “I don’t know of a team, at any level, with so many new players that is straight away the finished article. We’re playing well and we’re creating the chances but we’re not taking them and we need to rectify that.

“It is important that we’re playing well and creating chances. If we weren’t doing either of those and not winning, then it wouldn’t be good.

“But there’s no need to panic. If we can rectify the mistakes we’re making early on then there’s a long way to go in the season. We’re not far away from the finished article and hopefully we can get closer to that on Saturday.”

Michael Appleton’s Oxford side have struggled in the opening weeks of the season, but Weston says he and Blues cannot take their league position into consideration on Saturday.

“I don’t look at the table until after ten games, before that I don’t think there is any point looking at it,” he added.

“If Oxford United go and win two games they push themselves right up the table and next weekend when we play Portsmouth, a couple of defeats for them and they will drop to mid-table.

“After ten games or so the table starts to take shape and we’ll be able to know a lot more about teams, but I personally don’t think there are any easy games in this division.”

Having settled with Blues since his arrival in the summer, Weston is pleased with the decision he made to come to Roots Hall. He added: “I feel like I made the right choice. We’ve got a good squad here that I think can push for promotion.

“I’ve enjoyed it since I arrived. I think I give the team something different, which they maybe didn’t have last season. I will keep working hard and do the best I can do for the team.”
