THERE is no disguising Jack Bridge’s determination to extend Southend United’s impressive home record.

Blues host Wealdstone at Roots Hall on Saturday having won eight of their 10 games at their own ground so far this season.

But Bridge is eager for the excellent run of results to continue.

“Everyone is looking forward to it and we’ve got some great results at home this season,” said Bridge.

“We’re very hard to play against at Roots Hall with the fans right behind us and we’re looking forward to having a few on the bounce.

“We want to pick up more points and keep the good home run going.”

Bridge will again be looking to help make that happen by continuing his creative play in the final third.

The left wing-back has seven assists and four goals already this season.

But he also caught the eye last weekend off the pitch after dressing as a Tele-Tubby on a team night out.

“I was a Tele-Tubby,” laughed Bridge.

“People stare at you and you forget why until you remember you’re a bright red Tele-Tubby in the middle of the street.

“But it’s good to do things like that.

“Even though we’ve already got such good team spirit anyway things like that always help the morale even more.”

The night out followed a determined 1-1 draw at Gateshead. And Bridge was pleased the Shrimpers fought back to secure a share of the spoils “They are a very good team to be fair to them but we played well as well,” said Bridge.

“We found a way to get a result which is something we’ve done a few times away from home this season now. It’s been what we’re about for so long now.

And Bridge again played a part in the Shrimpers equaliser as his left wing cross eventually resulted in Harry Cardwell firing home.

“The goal on Saturday is something we look to do with crosses from that area and we’ve got good players who are willing to attack the ball,” said Bridge.

“Luckily it fell our way and Cards stuck it away.”
