LIAM Clark is the latest Southend United fan to have his say on what is happening at Roots Hall.

SINCE the appointment of Kevin Bond as Blues manager, a lot has changed for the better and there are less negatives for us as fans to focus on.

With the change up frequently of team selection and the use of youth players, we have seen a variety of talents such as Emile Acquah.

During the game against Shrewsbury Town with interim manager Ricky Duncan, we saw Acquah’s strength on and off the ball and ability to win it back. However, he is yet to get an opportunity to show this in the new manager’s squad.

With regards to the relegation battle, we all need to get behind the team and believe in them.

I have heard many people put the team down but it is not going to help the team seeing this negativity.

We are confident that we can stay up but we must fight hard in these next few games.

I agree highly with Kevin’s choice of Jason Demetriou as captain as he is both experienced and can keep a cool head in some circumstances along with a commanding voice at the back.

His national team captaincy has also proved this.

One of our biggest issues this term has been our presence in front of goal.

Until the change up in strikers at Fleetwood, we have had no clear cut chances and only one shot on target at home is poor.

However, with the return of Stephen Humphrys this could change and also give Simon Cox some confidence.

Sam Hart was recently given our player of the month for March and I think this was a controversial decision but he has added pace and flair to the team with his work rate down the left hand side.

He is often seen overlapping Stephen McLaughlin or Michael Kightly, which is what we were used to seeing with Ben Coker at the start of the season.

This weekend we play Wycombe Wanderers, who we beat in the League Two play-off final at Wembley back in 2015.

With them also battling to stay up it should be set for a good atmosphere in what could be a decisive game.
