Paul Sturrock: Wants his charges to stay focused

The Shrimpers' chief was ecstatic with his side's display in their dramatic tie with Leyton Orient on Wednesday, and he has called on his side to improve their league form and book another trip to Wembley.

"I can't wait to go to Wembley for the first time, I'm as excited as the players but now we must focus," he told the club's official website.

"We need to get promotion to League 1 this season and we're a little off the pace at the moment.

"It's important we turn that round, we can use the success of Wednesday as a tonic for picking up our form in the league."
