Adam Barrett: I want another memorable night at Roots Hall

14 May 2015

Defender wants Blues to make it another spectacular night under the lights at Roots Hall.

Southend United defender Adam Barrett wants to make sure of another memorable match at Roots Hall, when Blues do battle with Stevenage on Thursday evening.

The legendary centre back is on course to make appearance number 301 for the Club against Boro, and has been involved in plenty of fantastic games during his two spells at Roots Hall.

“I've had a few great days at Roots Hall and hopefully Thursday night against Stevenage can be another one,” Barrett said ahead of the clash against Graham Westley's side.

“I want to be playing in big games, the feel good factor is back and we're going to have a tremendous support behind us. We're desperate to get promotion, we've had a fantastic season and we want to finish it off now, not just by getting to Wembley, but by getting promotion.

“We had a similar situation ten years ago against Grimsby Town but we're back confident, the camp's buzzing and we're looking forward to it.”

And the 35-year-old, like his manager, says the home crowd can be a key factor in which way the game goes on Thursday.

“I always wanted to come back to Southend and I've proved I have a lot in the tank. I'm going to fight tooth and nail to get promotion. 

“It'll be emotional for me on Thursday but we have hopefully two massive games left. We know how important this stage of the season is, and me, and our supporters have the experience from ten years ago. They need to get behind us once again at Roots Hall.”
