Going up a level

Chopper calls for more quality in attack against Southend

Caretaker boss Neil Harris has called on his side to be more clinical in the final third against Southend United in Saturday's FA Cup with Budweiser Third Round tie (3pm).

Chopper, alongside Scott Fitzgerald, will once again lead The Lions against his former club, and has urged his players to build on promising periods of play against both Doncaster and Leicester.

"It's a local game for us and the fact that we'll have 2,000 fans there adds a bit of spice," he told Lions Player. "The importance of it has been stressed to the players because we want to progress to the next round and be in that draw.

"If we show the same character, desire, commitment and ability on the ball that we showed at times against Leicester then we can make it slightly easier for ourselves.

"The boys have been absolutely top drawer and have given us everything on the training pitch and in the games. That's all we can ask.

"We've been getting into some fantastic positions in the final third but have maybe lacked that little bit of quality. That's the next level. We've got to keep getting into those positions but when we do, it's about the end product."
