Tomorrow’s game against Plymouth Argyle is about putting things right, Blues skipper Anton Ferdinand has said.
It was an uncharacteristic performance at Rotherham, culminating in a 5-0 defeat, which was in stark contrast to the showing against Blackburn Rovers a week earlier.
And Ferdinand told southendunited.co.uk he is expecting the football to do the talking against the Pilgrims.
“It’s been a good week of training,” he said.
“No defeat is nice, but to get the defeat we got and the manner that we got it so early on in the season was probably an eye-opener, especially after the talk we had after the Blackburn game.
“The beauty of football is there is always a game next week to put things right. This game is surely about that.
“We’re going to let the football do the talking and that starts on Saturday.
“You look at the start to the season, we’ve played two teams that have come down from the Championship and Saturday we’re playing a team that has come up from League Two.
“They’re hard games, but this season we’ve got to concentrate on ourselves and that’s what we’ll do.”
