Blues keeper Rhys Evans couldn't have done much more to impress Blues boss Paul Sturrock with a double penalty save against Gillingham in the his debut on Tuesday, and he wasnts to stay! Evans wants to remain at No.1The 28-year-old kept a clean sheet on his first start in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy victory over Gillingham. Evans, who joined Southend from Bristol Rovers this summer, now wants to retain his place. Rhys told BBC Essex: "I don't think I could have done much more so it's obviously up to the manager. I'm trying to impress and I want to do well. I was very disappointed not to start the season as I thought I'd done enough in pre-season. But I'll respect his [Sturrock's] decision and just try and keep going on and see what happens. Glenn's done pretty well, but if I get an opportunity I've got to try and take it."
