TIMOTHEE Dieng wants Blues to build on their painful point against Blackpool when they to Scunthorpe United on Tuesday night.

The Shrimpers were held to a 2-2 draw by the Seasiders at the weekend after Taylor Moore headed home an injury time own goal.

But Dieng is now eager to get back to winning ways at Glanford Park this evening as Southend United bid to boost their survival hopes.

“We were gutted to lose the two points like we did on Saturday but that’s football and now we have to go again on Tuesday,” said the midfielder.

“We need win there to make the point on Saturday a good one and we’ll be fired up to make sure that happens.”

Blues go into the game sitting 14th in the League One standings, just three points above the relegation zone.

And Dieng remains frustrated not to have moved further clear of the drop zone.

“Saturday was very frustrating,” said the 26-year-old.

“We did everything right until the last second of the game but we have to move on and do everything we can on Tuesday.”

The Shrimpers have now gone eight games without a win.

And Dieng, who signed after turning down a new contract with Bradford City in the summer, is fully aware of how important every point will be between now and the end of the season.

“We know the situation but we will give 100 per cent on the pitch to get out of this relegation battle,” said Dieng.

“Every point is important in a relegation battle so we will give 100 per cent in every game, starting with Scunthorpe.”

Blues will make the trip to Glanford Park boosted by the returns of defensive trio Rob Kiernan, Harry Lennon and Jason Demetriou.

And Dieng is delighted to see them back in action.

“I was buzzing to see them come back, especially Rob Kiernan who was out for nearly two years,” said the Frenchman.

“He played well and scored against Blackpool but we’re going to need them all in the games we have left.”
