Luke Prosser: Let's continue momentum and get Roots Hall to be our fortress!

Southend United defender Luke Prosser is aiming to keep his place in the Blues line-up on Saturday after a win and a clean sheet at Millwall last Saturday.

The appearance at The Den was the 27-year-old’s third league appearance of the season, with Luke playing at both left back and centre back during the game.

And Luke was satisfied with his performance in south London and wants to keep the momentum going both personally and for the team when Scunthorpe United come to Essex on Saturday.

“It was a pleasing performance and result,” Luke reflected.

“We knew we needed to win. It’s never easy to go to The Den and win but we all did a good job. If called upon then I’m ready to be put back in there on Saturday.

“It went alright slotting in there to be honest. I played there a few times under Paul Sturrock, and although it’s not my favourite position, I felt fine playing there.

“Ads [Adam Barrett] had to come off and I went back into the middle with Glen Rea at left back.

“The weekend went according to plan and hopefully we can build on that, get a run going and get up the league.”

Blues are back at home on Saturday against Scunthorpe, and Prosser says Blues need to make Roots Hall the fortress it was last season.

“Training has been good this week and we’re preparing right for the game. We’ll talk more today and Friday about Scunthorpe. We’re prepared for a tough game and we know we need to kick on and improve the home form.

“We defended really well last year in League 2 and it was a fortress, but it’s something we need to work on, perhaps tightening up at the back a little bit.

“It’ll be a good game to win, especially at home to get the fans buzzing. They were fantastic last season and have been this season as well, especially when you consider the miles we have to travel this season!”
