SAM Hart is hoping to be in seventh heaven with Southend United on Saturday.

The on loan left-back has failed to win any of his six home games since joining Blues on a temporary basis from Blackburn Rovers.

But Hart is confident his wait for a home win can finally end this weekend as the Shrimpers face Wycombe Wanderers in a crunch clash.

“It’s a big game but one we can go into feeling confidence after the way we played against Fleetwood at the weekend,” said Hart.

“I thought we kept the ball well and we played some really good football.

“We can look forward to Saturday now and of course I’m hoping for my first home win here.”

Hart joined Blues during the January transfer window and has started all 14 of the matches since arriving at Roots Hall.

However, Hart has not tasted victory since a 4-0 win at Bradford City on his debut and the Shrimpers are now facing a fight to stay in League One.

Hart’s long-term future seems likely to be away from Roots Hall.

But he is as determined as anyone to make sure Blues avoid relegation.

“I have a connection with everyone here and when we lose I feel like we’re letting people down and I hate it,” said Hart.

“Every single one of us hates losing and I’m no different.

“We’re desperate to get the results and points we need to stay up but we were all encouraged by Saturday.

“We’ve always been confident but a performance like that against a good team helps even more with the confidence and if we keep playing like that in the remaining five games we’ll be fine.”

The Shrimpers will also be heading into those matches with Kevin Bond in charge.

And Hart is already enjoying working with the new manager.

“It’s been good and he’s been getting his message across with how he wants us to play,” said the left-back.

“I thought Saturday was a good start with that and the main thing he’s been saying to us is that we have to keep the ball better and play with freedom.

“I thought we did that, especially in the first half when we played some good stuff and created some good chances.

“I don’t really think Fleetwood had a chance of their own and we played less long balls than we had been doing in the past few games.

“But we have to make sure we build on that and get the three points on Saturday.”
