'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Penney - It's Still All To Play For

Assistant manager Dave Penney has said that the play off semi final is far from over, and Southend have everything to play for as he believes we were the better team today even though we went down to a narrow one nil loss, inspite of Burton being reduced to ten men.

Speaking to the Official Site following full time, Penney explained.

'We're disappointed not to have got something from the game because we felt that we were the better team. We've seen how tough it can be to break teams down once they go down to ten men and we saw that again here. The sending off gave us 30 minutes to try and get something, but we didn't really seem to be able to get that bit of luck we needed.'

Penney goes on to say that really the best chance fell to John Egan, but we had a few other opportunities that we just didn't make the most of unfortunately, but given the overall performance and the season we've had, he doesn't feel anybody should be too down following the game because it is only the cliched 'half time' in the tie and with home advantage at Roots Hall for the 2nd leg, we know we have more than enough about us to turn this around and get the result and the goals we need.

'There's still all to play for when we take them on again at Roots Hall next week. We will be confident of turning the tie our way, as we've shown in recent weeks that we can play some excellent stuff.'

Penney ended the interview by praising the fans for their support and the noise they made on the road today, and he knows they will more than do their part the next time we face them.
