ELVIS Bwomono insists Southend United will be gunning for revenge when they head to Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday.

Blues - who are without a fixture this weekend - were thrashed 7-1 by Rovers at Roots Hall back in October.

And Bwomono is determined to help the Shrimpers get their own back in the reverse fixture.

“I remember every game and you always try and learn from them but that one really stands out still because losing 7-1 was just embarrassing if we’re honest about it,” said Bwomono.

“It hurt at the time and it still hurts now when you look back so 100 per cent we will be going there looking for a bit of payback and revenge.

“We can’t change what’s already happened but we will want to show we’re a different side now and build on the unbeaten run we’re currently enjoying.”

Blues are unbeaten in their last four matches and got back to winning ways with a 2-1 victory at Accrington Stanley on Saturday.

And Bwomono - who has been voted the Shrimpers’ player of the month five times in a row - is hoping the win will hand Sol Campbell’s side a timely boost.

“We’re unbeaten in four and winning at Accrington was a great feeling,” said the 21-year-old.

“We knew the victory had been coming and we know it should have arrived a few weeks ago really.

“But to finally get over the line was a great feeling and one we want to enjoy more often now.”

Bwomono started Saturday’s clash at right wing-back before moving into a more central defensive role following an injury to Timothee Dieng.

Bwomono also played in a more central role at the back during the Shrimpers’ 1-1 draw at AFC Wimbledon on New Year’s Day.

And the youngster feels capable of lining up in either role.

“I don’t mind playing there and I’m perfectly happy doing whatever the manager asks me to do,” said Bwomono.

“It’s a different role and you do have to adjust but there are also a lot of similarities.

“You have to get the basics right and have the right body shape but I’m perfectly happy playing in that role if that’s what the manager thinks is best for the team.

“We have a few injuries at the moment but I’m willing to do whatever is needed.”

Despite Saturday’s win, Blues remain second-from-bottom in the League One standings, 12 points from safety. However, Doncaster still have play-off aspirations and are currently 10th in the table.
