Kevan Hurst: Disappointment with Wigan Athletic point shows how far we've come

28 November 2015

Hurst admits players are frustrated to only earn a point against the Latics following 0-0 draw.

Southend United winger Kevan Hurst admitted a point against Wigan Athletic in Sky Bet League 1 showed 'how far we've come'.

Hurst played on the wing during the clash with the Latics which ended all square at Roots Hall, but he feels the chances were there for either side to have sneaked a win.

“We set our stall out quite well, we had chances and they had chances,” Hurst said after the game.

“We hit the crossbar and they had a couple cleared off the line as well.

“We're disappointed in there, so it shows how far we've come to be disappointed at drawing at home to Wigan, who, of course, a couple of years ago were in the Premier League.

“We played some good stuff but we just couldn't find that final touch to get a goal. We kept persevering but it didn't go our way. We're happy with the point and the clean sheet in the end.

“They have some real quality and a big squad, but we've got a squad to rival anyone in this league as well.”

The 30-year-old's been a part of an upturn in fortunes for the Blues in recent games, and is delighted to have got a run in the team.

Hurst grabbed three assists against Oldham Athletic on Tuesday evening and says he's keen for the unbeaten run the team are on to continue.

“I'm enjoying being back in the team and I'm enjoying my football. We're on a good run at the moment which is nice and hopefully we can carry that on.”
