Kevan Hurst: We have to stick together and show our character

20 March 2015

Midfielder wants to put things right against Cambridge United.

Southend United midfielder Kevan Hurst has urged the squad to 'stick together' ahead of Saturday's test against Cambridge United, after a tough 2-1 defeat against Burton Albion.

Blues suffered a late defeat to the Brewers on a frustrating night, but Hurst says it's time the side move on and look to put things right against Cambridge.

“We were very disappointed,” the 29-year-old admitted.

“It could be crushing but we have to show character. We have to take it game by game now and see where it takes us. It's certainly not the end but we let ourselves down.

“We needed to put the Burton defeat to bed. We spoke about it on Thursday, said what needed to be said and have moved on. We need to stick together now.”

And with nine games of the campaign remaining, Hurst believes all is not lost and the Blues can't give up on the automatic promotion spots.

“Every game is crucial now. It's the nature of the business end of the season. It's a pressure filled area. 

“We have to relax and get on with it. We can still achieve what we want to achieve this season, and we need to start another good run on Saturday against Cambridge.”
