SOUTHEND Saxons will be looking to put things right when they head to Amersham & Chiltern in London One North tomorrow.

Southend slipped to seventh in the standings following Saturday’s 28-17 defeat to table-topping Sudbury.

And Saxons skipper Matt Wagstaff is keen to make amends this weekend.

“The squad know we left points out there last week and we had chances to win the game,” said Wagstaff.

“Therefore we are looking forward to the chance to rectify those mistakes.

“Amersham are a tough team and have a particular style of play.

“But we need to impose our game plan early and get going from the first whistle.”

Southend had been unbeaten in five games before Saturday's defeat.

But Wagstaff was still encouraged by aspects of the performance.

"In reflection our overall performance against Sudbury didn’t warrant the win, however it was fantastic character from all 18 players to get into a position to nearly win the game," said Wagstaff.

"We also felt we missed a few opportunities.

"We dropped one over the line and had a lot of time spent in their 22.

"But there were plenty of positives to take as a team. We had plenty of possession and looked comfortable with ball in hand. Our set piece was strong, which gave the backs a good platform but we just were not firing on all cylinders."
