Hat-trick hero Theo Robinson spoke of his delight at scoring a hat-trick against MK Dons on Saturday - the first of his professional career.
The Southend striker - who has now scored four goals in his last two starts at Roots Hall - has worked his way back into contention after a spell out the squad.
And he couldn’t hold back his joy at another impressive display.
“I’m on top of the world right now because it’s my first career hat-trick, so I’m buzzing.
“We all worked hard as a team, we knew what we had to do and I got some luck as well, especially with the third goal.
“It’s every striker’s dream to be in the right place at the right time for the six yard tap-ins so I’ll take them all day.
“I played MK Dons for the U23s and scored four so that was in the back of my mind.
“I told a few friends that I wanted to score two but I’ve come away with three so it’s even better.
“I’m happy that I’ve scored the goals and to help the team get three points as well.”
Robinson has worked himself back into contention in the last month and wants to continue his fine form when Blues travel to Oldham on Tuesday night.
“I’ve been patient, worked hard and taken each game at a time.
“I want to play every game but it’s up to the manager.
“We’ve put a marker down and hopefully we can take our home form away from home.
“It’s going to be another tough game on Tuesday against Oldham but if we keep doing the right things we can turn it around away from home.”
