Deegan | "We've got to kick on again."

2 March 2016

Blues midfielder taking it 'one game at a time'

Southend United midfielder, Gary Deegan is looking to finish the season with a flourish; starting this Saturday as the Blues host Chesterfield.

The Irishman returned to the side last night in the 1-1 draw with Crewe Alexandra at Roots Hall.

The argument of whether it was a point gained or two lost is irrelevant in Deegan’s eyes; his focus is purely on Chesterfield now; nothing more.

“We’ve got big aspirations of finishing the season strong and trying and make a push in to the top six.” He said.

“We’ll pick ourselves up and go again.

“We can’t look too far ahead, we’ve got to take each game as it comes and the next stop is Chesterfield at home on Saturday.”

Just 12 games remain in the League One season. Every one of those games will have somewhat a cup final feel as the Blues look to achieve play-off glory.

With much to play for, Deegan maintains the mantra of ‘one game at a time’ is vital to keep the side grounded as they reach for the skies.

“Every game is a big game. We want to do something this year as a club, and as a group of lads.

“We all want to do something starting Saturday, but we can’t afford to look too far down the line.

“It’s not about personal performance, it’s about a collective team effort. I’m out there to help the lads along.

“The Gaffer came in and reassured us that we’ve got to kick on again, so regardless of results elsewhere, we’ve got to come in Saturday flying.”
