SOUTHEND United striker Stephen Humphrys wants a match to finally remember at Accrington Stanley tomorrow.

Humphrys broke his nose, cheekbone and eye socket when heading home for the Shrimpers on their previous visit to the Crown Ground in February 2019.

But the 22-year-old cannot recall what happened.

“I can only remember going to the hospital and hoping we had won the game,” said Humphrys.

“Hopefully this time I’ll stay conscious for the 90 minutes and we can get the three points.”

Humphrys broke 15 bones in his face when clashing into Accrington goalkeeper Jonny Maxted and played with a protective mask until earlier this season.

However, Humphrys is still troubled by the injuries off the pitch.

“My face is fine now and I don’t think about it too much really but eating is still a little bit hard,” said the striker.

“The metal restricts a lot of movement but apart from that I’m all good.”

But Humphrys is eager to get back among the goals having not hit the back of the net since 

“I think when you’re going through a bit of a drought, it’s best not to focus on it and try to keep playing for the team,” said the striker.

"The goals will come and once they do I'm sure they'll keep flowing.

"Hops(Tom Hopper) and I are both goalscorers so I'm sure we'll be fine in the long run."
