SEAN Clohessy heads back to Gillingham tonight insisting there is now a much better team spirit at Southend United.

Blues have grouped together to triumph in their last four games.

And Clohessy feels much of that is down to the togetherness of the side.

“There is a really good spirit here now and there’s none of the internal bickering that we had going on last year,” said Clohessy, 25.

“We’re all very close and having a smaller squad has helped with that.

“Everyone feels involved and although the people who aren’t playing are going to be disappointed they remain right behind the team because we’re very much in this together.”

That new-found spirit will be severely tested at the Priestfield Stadium this evening and Clohessy is expecting a tough test against Gills.

“They’re flying at the moment and won 4-0 at the weekend so we know it will be hard there,” said the right back who made 46 appearances for the Kent club at the start of his career.

“They’re a very strong side but we go there full of confidence ourselves so it should be a really good game.”
