Adam Barrett: Let's get Roots Hall rocking on Saturday!

4 September 2015

Defender certain that first win isn't far away for the Blues.

Southend United defender Adam Barrett believes Blues' 'first win will come', ahead of the game against Peterborough United at Roots Hall on Saturday.

Barrett's played every game so far this season, and despite Blues still searching for those three points, says there's reasons to be cheerful.

“That first win will come. The away performances have been really good this year and we played well against Coventry,” the 35-year-old says.

“The only bad performance this season has been at Walsall. We're looking solid and organised, it's just a case of being ruthless. One win and you jump up the league – it's early days.”

The Posh visit Roots Hall after a bit of a disappointing start to the campaign, but Barrett's adament that Dave Robertson's men will still be a stern test for the Blues.

“Peterborough have had a bit of an indifferent start. They've been up there for the last few years and have been promotion candidates over that period of time. It's not going to be an easy game in a tough league.

“We haven't started well at Roots Hall, but we're strong at home and we'd like to have a good home record this year.

“When Roots Hall is rocking and the fans are behind us it's a difficult place to come for teams.”

Barrett's been at the heart of defence from the first game of the season at Fleetwood Town, but he's already partnered three different centre backs this season.

So how's he finding it?

“You like to get partnerships going. Unfortunately for Bolg [Cian Bolger] he's missed out, and Glen [Rea] has come in and done well on Monday, as did Luke Prosser against Swindon.

“When you get to my age you've played with a lot of partners over the years”
