Adam Thompson: I'm buzzing with first Blues goal and the clean sheet

21 November 2015

Defender thrilled to earn win against Blackpool at Roots Hall.

Southend United defender Adam Thompson admitted he was delighted to contribute to a big win for the Blues against Blackpool on Saturday.

Thompson scored the winner in the 1-0 win and was also part of a defence that kept a clean sheet against the Tangerines.

“The conditions today weren’t the best and it’s a great result for us. With the wind it was so hard to judge the ball and it’s taken a defender to pop up with a goal!” Thompson said.

“It was a great ball in from Wozza and Moons was up there so I thought I’d give him a bit of help!

“I got a nose bleed going up there, nearly falling over but it’s a big confidence boost for me.”

And Thompson – who, after seven months out, has started the last three games – insists the Blues must take the win forward to Oldham Athletic on Tuesday evening.

“It’s the start of a big week for us and I was delighted to get the goal as well that helped us win the game,” the 23-year-old said after the game.

 “The clean sheet was massive and even 0-0 would have been a good result. The lads are all buzzing in there and we want to take it into Tuesday now at Oldham."
