BRANDON Goodship feels Southend United will head to Wycombe Wanderers this weekend boosted by their midweek display against Peterborough.

The Shrimpers, who have yet to pick up a point this season, were beaten 2-0 by Posh at Roots Hall on Tuesday night.

But Goodship still felt there was plenty to be positive about.

“Wycombe will be another hard game but I really do feel we can go there feeling good after the way we played against Peterborough,” said Goodship, who joined the Shrimpers from Weymouth in the summer.

“We were on top in the first half and I don’t really think Peterborough had a clear cut chance in the opening 45 minutes.

“I had a chance just before half-time which I know I should be taking and if I do then it’s a different game.

“Peterborough took the opportunities which came their way and that was the difference in the end.

“It’s fine margins but I thought there was plenty to be positive about because the performance was so much better and we have to take that into Saturday now.”

Goodship, who has been featuring on the left hand side, also came close to scoring at the start of the second half for the Shrimpers.

And he is determined to soon hit the back of the net.

“I think everyone wants that first goal to get their season going and I’m no different,” said Goodship.

“I’m enjoying the role on the left hand side, I’ve been working on getting used to it and I think I’m able to get into some good positions coming in onto my right foot.

“Hopefully the first goal isn’t far away now and it would be great to get it Saturday.”

Goodship played more a central striker during his prolific two year spell with Weymouth.

But he is glad to be back in the team after recovering from a hip problem which forced him to miss two games.

“It was frustrating to get the injury just before the Blackpool game in training and it halted my momentum a little bit,” said Goodship.

“I’m back in the starting line-up now though and I blew away a few cobwebs on Tuesday so I’m feeling good again.

“I’m looking forward to the Wycombe game.”

The Chairboys are currently fourth in the standings after taking eight points from their first four games. But Goodship is keen to upset the hosts.

“We need to be on the front foot again from the first whistle,” he added.
