Blues midfielder gives his thoughts on Sheffield United win at Roots HallBlues Midfielder, David Worrall was delighted to be back amongst the starting eleven and back amongst the goals in the victory over Sheffield United on Wednesday.
After suffering from an injury to his right leg against Chesterfield, the 25-year old made his first start after getting back to full fitness.
With the scores level at 1-1, it was a case of cometh the hour, cometh the man as Worrall riffled the Blues back in to the lead on 60 minutes with a scorcher.
After Jack Payne settled the affair with a delightful third, Worrall was thrilled the team had reacted from the Rochdale setback in the best possible way.
Speaking after the game about the importance of last night’s performance, Worrall said “It was massive.
“From the talk the gaffer gave us after the Rochdale game you could see he was hurting, and we knew straight away we had to put it right.
“We always seem to do well in front of Sky, but now we need to keep winning, keep grafting like we did tonight.
“It will be tough to keep it up week in, week out but I think that’s the way we need to play.”
Worrall’s second half strike was certainly a collector’s item, and the midfielder claims he knew the ball was destined for goal as soon as he struck it.
“I had a feeling I was going to score today, I just had a feeling it was going to be one of them nights.
“I had chance before the goal where the keeper has done well. As soon as I cut in I knew as soon as it left my foot I was running away and we’d scored.
The result last night moves the Blues up to eighth in the League 1 standings, and although the play-offs may not be in Southend’s hands, Worrall says the players will never stop chasing down that top-six spot.
“It’s not really in our hands, it’s in the hands of the teams above us.
“If they want to keep it, they’ve got to win every game, but we’ll do everything we can to finish as high as we possibly can.”
