BARRY Corr is urging Southend United to line up in a more positive formation this season.

Corr bagged his first preseason goal of the summer in the Shrimpers’ 2-1 defeat at Braintree Town on Saturday.

And the Irishman would love to keep playing alongside another striker in a 4-4-2 system instead of having to play as lone forward as he did for most of the previous campaign.

“I’m enjoying having someone alongside me up there,” said Corr.

“The last couple of games I’ve been with Myles (Weston) and he’s a good player.

“He has good pace and ability and we had Lee Barnard on in the second half who did well too and I would definitely like to have a partner in attack this year.

“As long as I’m playing I don’t mind too much and I would be happy to carry on as last year.

“But from a personal point of view I would like us to be more positive and more attacking.”

Corr top scored with 13 last season and is keen to improve on that tally this time around.

However, he was not getting too excited over his well taken effort at Braintree.

“It’s nice to get a goal but they don’t count for much at this stage,” said Corr.

“It’s all about the competitive games once the season starts and getting ready for that.

“It was disappointing to lose here but we all know results aren’t the most important thing at this time of year.”
