SOUTHEND United right-back Elvis Bwomono remains frustrated he will be not be able to add to first team appearances this weekend.

Bwomono produced an impressive performance to help the Shrimpers see off local rivals Colchester United 2-0 in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday night.

But he will not be able to build on that on Saturday as Blues are without a fixture after their scheduled clash with Oldham Athletic was postponed due to the Latics’ number of international call-ups.

“It’s just the worst we aren't playing on Saturday,” said the 18-year-old.

“Jason (Demetriou) is away playing for his country which any of us would love to be doing but that could have meant I got another game.

“It’s frustrating for me but hopefully I can still play in the next game anyway.”

The Shrimpers are now not in action until they head to Portsmouth a week on Saturday.

But Bwomono was pleased to help Blues sign off with a victory before their enforced break.

“It was a hard and tough game and it was good to get the win as well as the clean sheet,” said the youngster who came through the youth ranks at Roots Hall.

“We had to be on it mentally for the whole 90 minutes and I thought we played well.”

And Bwomono was also happy with his own display which was heavily praised by Blues boss Phil Brown.

“Every chance I get I try and make sure I take it and I would like to think I did that against Colchester,” said the defender.

“I’ll keep working hard on the training ground and hopefully I’ll get another opportunity in the first team soon.”
