WORRALL | "We've just got to keep going"

Blues midfielder gives his views on a dissapointing defeat to Blackpool

Southend United midfielder David Worrall admits the Blackpool defeat is a bitter pill to swallow as the Blues went down 2-0 at Bloomfield Road.

After the euphoria of Wednesday’s win over Sheffield United, Phil Brown’s men were brought back down to earth by a Tangerines side scrapping for their lives at the bottom of League 1.

Goals from Mark Cullen and Jacob Blyth was enough to give the hosts all three points, highlighting the Blues issue with consistency according to Worrall.

“It’s a tough one, especially after the high on Wednesday.” He said.

“I think consistency seems to be the word for us this season, as we seem to do it on Sky, and against the bigger teams.

“They (Blackpool) were fighting for something, and we were fighting for something and it just looked like they wanted it more.”

It was a game that was never beyond Southend, and the Blues had some very good opportunities to score.

But Worrall felt the ball just wasn’t dropping for him and his team on Saturday.

“We had a couple of good chances.

“We said after the game we had a loads of crosses going in, but it just didn’t fall for us today.

“We were just the wrong side and the ball was dropping to them and that’s just the fine margins of it.”

Defeat put a dent in Blues’ play-off bid as the gap between them and the play-offs stretched to eight points.

However, whilst there are still games to be played, points to played for and still a mathematical possibility, Worrall says the players will never stop pushing.

“We’ve just got to keep going.

“We’ve got to take very game as it comes, we’re not saying play-offs but the higher we can finish the better, and if we sneak in there then it’s a bonus.

“It’s never really been in our hands this season, but if teams do slip up we need to make sure we get the wins and take it down to the wire.”
