David Worrall: Winger delighted to open his account for the season

8 August 2015

Substitute delighted to help earn Blues a point at Highbury Stadium.

Southend United midfielder was delighted to get on the scoresheet for the Blues, with his goal in the 84th minute rescuing a point for the Blues at Fleetwood Town.

The substitute was alert to lob Cod Army goalkeeper Chris Maxwell with six minutes left and get a deserved draw for the visitors.

And the 25-year-old admitted it was important to 'get something on the table'.

“It's always good to get something on the table – especially away from home. Fleetwood are a good team that know this league,” Worrall said.

“They are more of a counter attacking team. They frustrated us a little bit out there.”

And on the goal – a great loft over the head of the stranded Maxwell, Worrall admitted that he did mean it despite his team-mates' doubts!

“I've had a bit of stick for it. The lads have said I didn't mean it but I definitely did. I saw there was nobody on the line so I decided to go for it.

“My best mate Lee Walker was in there with his hat on and when we scored Lenny [Ryan Leonard] took his hat off him! It's a horrible hat but that's his fashion sense I'm afraid!”

“It was a good game for us and there would have been a couple of upsets in the division.

“Hopefully we can push on now. I was disappointed not to start the game but we have a strong squad here and a good group.

“There's pressure on if you don't get something on the board. We're happy with the point.”
