Barry Corr: It's a cup final but it's important we don't get too excited

Irishman wary of Morecambe 'quality' ahead of Saturday's trip.

Southend United striker Barry Corr wants Blues to 'keep their feet on the ground' ahead of the clash with Morecambe on Saturday.

Corr's played a big part in Blues' run to get to this point, and the Southend top goalscorer insists it's important his team-mates don't get too 

“It's going to be like a cup final,” the 30-year-old said on Thursday.

“We all know that if we win then we're promoted and that's what we'll be aiming to do.

“I don't think there's any motivational talk needed. It's important not to get too excited about it. We need to remember to do a good professional job and keep our head clear. If we do that then hopefully we'll be able to go out and win the game.

“We're positive and have timed the run well. Morecambe are a difficult team but there's a lot of confidence in the squad, but we'll keep our feet on the ground.

“We've worked hard to get to the position we're in at the moment and it'll all be for nothing if we don't get the win on Saturday.”

And Corr added that Blues won't be taking the Shrimps for granted, and said that Jim Bentley's side do have 'quality' in the ranks to cause Southend problems.

“We know how big a game it is and we're all up for it. Morecambe are hard working and have a lot of quality – the likes of [Kevin] Ellison, [Jack] Redshaw and [Jamie] Devitt all have quality. It won't be easy, that's for sure. We'll go there hopeful of getting the three points.”
