Sturrock: 'I would still like to add to the squad offensively'
As ever with Blues boss Paul Sturrock it's a line or two at the end of a paragraph that has been about an entirely different subject that's catches the eye of the faithful.
And he obviously believes the defenders in his squad are OK even after the Bury opening goal Friday evening at Roots Hall led to this comment from the Shrimpers manager, 'it was disappointing to see that sucker punch floor us again at home, centre-back Mark Phillips might have to return sooner rather than later.
So it's up front that he sees an improvement and as hard as Blair Sturrock works, and the odd very important goal, it was obvious top scorer Barry Corr could do with some someone to share the burden if the play-offs are to remain just a distant dream.
Sturrock told www.southendunited.co.uk: "Bury are a very good side and have the best away form in the league, so it was disappointing to see that sucker punch floor us again at home. However, the players showed character and we chased the game and got our reward. Our defending at home has been our biggest problem this season but hopefully we can settle down now the players are fit. I would still like to add to the squad offensively and I'm speaking to several targets."
Of course, the majority of managers in any league are thinking simillar thoughts, ask former bosses Tilly and Spud at Lincoln and Bradford respectively, yet the success of Luggy's manangement this season could rest on him finding a bargin that can weigh in with ten plus goals that could see us stepping out at Old Trafford come May.
But do you think we could actually make the play-off Final?:
