Sturrock: 'Loathed to make any changes though as everyone has done so well'
The Southend manager Paul Sturrock is a happy Luggy, which is not surprising as he has just seen his side pull off a second successive 2-0 away win over Oxford United at the Kassam Stadium Saturday.
And what gave him most joy was 18-year-old youth captain Kane Ferdinand playing so well in midfield in place of Anthony Grant who injured his knee in training earlier in the week and will be going for a scan to take a look at the damage.
Sturrock told www.southendunited.co.uk: "Kane is a centre-back and he has played most of his early football there. We saw today that with a couple more games under his belt that he is going to be able to play in midfield as well and he has a future as a fullback in him as well."
Great stuff, and well done to Luggy on taking the punt on the boy.
However, he is still thinking about new faces as the tranfer window re-opens.
Luggy continued: "It is important that we bring people into the football club but it's also vitally important that we make spaces for them. We have a nice necleus of a squad at the moment, with two or three regulars out, and a couple of additions could give us a very interesting second half of the season."
Finally, the former Plymouth boss, whom he took out of the League's third and fourth tier's, turned his thoughts to Cheltenham Town at Roots Hall on Bank Holiday Monday at 3pm.
Ahh, the home of football, we haven't played there since November the 16th, directions to get there for away, and home, supporters available here:
Anyway, Luggy could well name an unchanged starting eleven.
He concluded: "I could do with the cheltenham game being a couple of days further away as Barry Corr has the flu and a few others are showing the symptons of it. I would be loathed to make any changes though as everyone has done so well today (Saturday)."
