HARRY Bunn is focusing on his football and not his finances as he bids to help Southend United secure their League One status.

Bunn, who scored in Blues’ 2-2 draw at Fleetwood Town on Saturday, is currently on loan from cash-strapped Bury who have not yet paid his wages for March.

But the 26-year-old does not want that to distract him from the remaining five games of the season.

“What’s going on at Bury does affect me and I haven’t been paid since the end of February,” said Bunn.

“I’m doing all I can to concentrate on football and I will do but it’s hard.

“I haven’t been given any information or a date when we might get paid but I haven’t been paid since the end of February now and I don’t really know what’s happening.”

League Two Bury released a statement last week confirming they were working to resolve the ‘unforeseen circumstances’ which had led to their players not receiving their salaries on time.

The Shakers, who are pushing for promotion, have also been handed a winding up petition by former head coach Chris Brass.

But Bunn is still determined to end the season strongly with the Shrimpers.

“I’m playing for Southend now, I really enjoy it here and want to do all I can to make sure we get the points we need to stay up,” said Bunn.

“I thought it was a good performance against Fleetwood at the weekend and they’re a good side so it was a decent result too.

“We would obviously have preferred all three but we can feel positive about how we played and we can make it an even better point by winning at the weekend now.”

Blues will head into the clash with Wycombe Wanderers in the relegation zone following Rochdale’s midweek win at Accrington Stanley.

Wycombe sit one place and one point above the Shrimpers, making Saturday’s match at Roots Hall hugely important.

And Bunn is hopeful he will be fit to figure despite suffering a tight hamstring against Fleetwood.

“I’m hoping it will be OK and I think I should be fit for the weekend,” said Bunn, who played as a central striker on Saturday.

“It’s been a bit like that for me this season and I’ve been playing catch up after not really having much of a pre-season.

“But we have five games to go and they’re very important ones so I want to finish the season strongly with us getting some good results.”
