JOE Pigott insists he will never tire from watching his Wembley goal he knows it will be hard to ever match.

Pigott scored a dramatic late equaliser to take Southend United’s play-off final with Wycombe Wanderers to a penalty shoot out the Shrimpers won 7-6.

And Pigott still enjoys looking back at his injury time leveller which will forever remain in Blues’ folklore.

“It was really special,” said Pigott.

“I took a good touch and then I just tried to hit it quickly with a short back-lift and I caught it sweetly.

“The keeper didn’t have a chance and each time I watch it the goal seems to get better.

“I watched it a few times and I watched it today actually to have a recap with it being the five years.

“It was incredible and it’s very hard to match that moment in anyone’s career, unless they scored in a Champions League final or something like that.”

Pigott’s goal saw the two teams tied at 1-1 at the end of extra time.

But Pigott was keen to point out how the whole team played a part in the victory. “It was hugely disappointing to go 1-0 down but our goal was a real team effort,” said Pigott.

“Payney (Jack Payne) made the tackle, Westy (Myles Weston) ran down the wing and Baz (Barry Corr) knocked it down to me.

“We gained the momentum from there to win the penalties.

“Everyone played a part, the team showed such character and Bents (Daniel Bentley) did the most important work at the end.”

And Pigott – who was on loan at Blues from Charlton Athletic – still has his own memento from the game.

“I’ve got a picture up in a room where I keep a few bits and I’m actually looking at it now,” said Pigott.

“It’s of me taking the shot and it was a nice gift someone gave me.

“It was a great night and the whole day was something special.”

Pigott now lines up for AFC Wimbledon but still holds Blues close to his heart.

And he chose not to celebrate when scoring the winning goal against the Shrimpers at Roots Hall in March 2019.

“Of course Southend has a place in my heart,” said Pigott.

“I helped to get them in League One so I didn’t celebrate when I scored that goal at Roots Hall.

“I’m not going to celebrate against work I helped to do.”
