PREVIEW | This is a chance to put oursleves firmly in the mix says Cox

5 January 2017

Striker looking forward to some big games ahead...

Simon Cox says upcoming games against sides above them is a great opportunity to put Blues firmly in the mix.

Sheffield United are first to come to Roots Hall, followed by Rochdale, Bolton Wanderers and then Scunthorpe at the beginning of February, with  Fleetwood sandwiched in between. 

And the striker, who scored his seventh goal for the club against Charlton, believes Blues can really make a push for a Play-Off place.

"It's an exciting game and what better test to put yourselves up against than the league leaders; the team we're chasing," he said.

"They're doing really well at the minute and for us, if we're going to do something this year, we want to be taking points off these sorts of teams.

"We've already taken three points off of their tally this year and we'll be hoping to take at least another one.

"I had a chat with the manager this morning and if we take a certain amount of points from these next five games, because we're playing the teams above us, it will give us a good platform to go into the latter part of the season."

Tickets for the game are available online, in person from the Roots Hall Ticket Office or by calling 08444 77 00 77.
