SOL Campbell feels Southend United are on the right track - despite their lack of victories.

The Shrimpers head to Accrington Stanley tomorrow looking for their first League One win since September.

But Campbell has been boosted by a run of three successive draws and feels Blues can get back to winning ways if they improve in front of goal.

“We’re on the right track,” said Campbell.

“I just think we need a bit more belief in front of goal.

“We are getting the chances and hopefully they will start to go in for us.

“We need to compose ourselves and keep working hard.

“The lads are really putting a shift in and if you keep working hard something has to drop for you sooner or later.

“The lads have started to show great character as well and the character is definitely building in all the players.

“We need characters on the pitch between now and the end of the season.”

The Shrimpers, who remain second from bottom in the table, have drawn five of their last seven matches.

But Campbell knows his team will be facing another tough challenge at Accrington tomorrow.

“We are challenged every weekend,” said the former England defender.

“We just have to make sure we set our stall out and look after their threats.

“We have to make sure we play our football and take our chances.

“We’ve been playing really good and last week was a really solid performance.

“We just need some luck in front of goal.”

Campbell has yet to win a League game since taking charge of the Shrimpers in October.

But the 45-year-old feels his side are now close to grabbing a victory.

“We need a bit more of a push to get over the line but it’s coming,” said Campbell.

“We have to have a bit more belief that we’re going to score.

“We’re practising all the different scenarios but they can’t be frightened and they just have to go for it. They need to be free and just take it.

“Once one goes in, confidence will be lifted. At the moment we seem to be facing keepers playing out of their skin but the main thing is we’re getting these chances. We have to be more ruthless.”
