Noel Hunt: We're baffled with our performance against Shrewsbury Town

12 September 2015

Irishman admits Blues must do better - starting with next week at Millwall - after defeat to the Shrews.

Southend United striker admitted afterwards that he and his team-mates were 'baffled' following a lethargic performance against Shrewsbury Town on Saturday.

Blues struggled to get a foothold in the game and created little chances against Micky Mellon's side.

And the performance was stark contrast to last week against Peterborough United when the Blues created a number of opportunities for Hunt and strike partner David Mooney.

“We're all a bit baffled and we've had a little meeting about it. It wasn't good enough,” Hunt said openly.

“We lacked energy and spark today. Normally you get away with things if one or two players are off form but we all weren't good enough today.

“We never really got in the game today to give ourselves a chance. We'll go over what happened tomorrow, but I think the only one to come out with the marks is Bents [Dan Bentley] in goal after a few great saves at the end.”

And Hunt says Blues will be ready to bounce back next week when the team make the short jouney to Bermondsey to take on Millwall in League 1.

“It's a big game next week against Millwall and we need to perform better and get back at it. We can't get away with those sort of performances and expect to keep the jersey. 

“Last week we were up in the skies and today we're down in the dumps.”
