Assistant Manager Coughlan looks forward to Bury

Southend United Assistant Manager Graham Coughlan looks forward to a tense and tight affair against Bury tomorrow night at Roots Hall.

“The boys are desperate to get back out on the pitch and start performing, last week wasn’t ideal at all.

“Players, management staff and fans all made the long trip up to Bradford and it’s obviously very disappointing that it got called off but it was the correct outcome, the ball wasn’t playable and there was very little we could’ve done.

“I just hope Bradford look after our fans because they will have to travel up there again in midweek whenever the game is rearranged.

“It’s frustrating, as a former player all you want to do is play and I used to enjoy the Christmas period with the games coming thick and fast. These bunches of boys are very game orientated and they enjoy the battle in game situations that they are presented with.

Coughlan expects it to be a tight match under the floodlights of Roots Hall tomorrow evening.

“Tradition would suggest that it’s going to be a very tight affair with maybe one goal being the difference, we’ve had good battles with them over the seasons.

“I don’t see too many goals in it; I’ve always enjoyed playing against Bury, they will be organised very well.

“League Two is a tough division but League One is even tougher, both clubs are progressing and you can see that in our league positions so far.

“Tomorrow should be a good catalyst for the Christmas period for us.”
