JASON Demetriou insists he is not concerned who ends the season as Southend United’s top goalscorer.

The Shrimpers right-back currently tops the scoring charts along with striker Simon Cox, who both have eight goals to their name.

But Demetriou says he is only concerned about picking up more points.

“I don’t really mind too much who ends the season as the top scorer, I just want us to win the games and finish as high up the table as we can,” said the 30-year-old.

“There’s good banter flying around about who might be top scorer and if I can chip in with another goal or two then great.

“But I’m not really thinking about it too much to be honest.”

Demetriou has now gone eight games without a goal, which has allowed Cox to draw back level with him after scoring in the 2-0 win against Rotherham United at Roots Hall.

But the defender will continue to do what is best for the team.

“Coxy mentioned me blocking his shot at Blackburn, but I passed it to him on the line at Oxford,” laughed the full-back.

“The keeper made a good save but we just want to make sure we get a better result against MK Dons this weekend.”

And the game may also see Demetriou having to line-up at left-back in place of the injured Ben Coker.

But Demetriou, who normally plays on the right hand side, does not mind switching roles - just like he did after captain Coker went off against Oxford United on Saturday.

“When I was at Leyton Orient I was actually a left winger for three or four years so I have played on that side before,” said Demetriou.

“I did it earlier on in the season and I’m happy to do it again if required.”
