Job Well Done For Yates

Manager Mark Yates has praised the players for a job well done against Wycombe Wanderers yesterday as we came out two one winners.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game, Yates explained that it was a big win for everybody given our form so far this season and not only did the players deserve it, but importantly so did the fans.

'We owed that win to everybody, ourselves, the supporters and the club. 30 games to go and we've just ticked one of them off with three points, a good away performance and I thought we were the better side.'

Yates went on to say that the players were desperately disappointed following the Tamworth game so had identified this match as one where we could really bounce back and get back on track following the cup frustrations.

However, he does add that it shouldn't take a blow like that for the players to then perform how they did yesterday, but to be fair to the players our league form over the past seven or so games had been decent in his mind and results haven't always gone how we'd have want in that spell, so his hope now is we can be a late entrant to the top places in the league given we haven't been able to stay up there like we did last term.

As for the game he feels the win was fully justified as he points out that Jamie Cureton could've had five goals himself, and he thought his performance was fantastic over the course of 90 minutes, so everybody was a little disappointed to head into the break on level terms but he was pleased with how they approach the second half and ultimately got what they deserved.

He also added that he felt it was Craig Braham-Barrett's best game for the club today because he was solid in defence, but also gave us good width and drive in attack, but given how everybody performed it's difficult for him to pick out individuals as it was a good team performance on the day.

The key now is to keep that momentum going in the league, and as Yates says we've had plenty of questions asked of us this season and taken a lot of stick, and he feels we are answering those questions now but it's far from over and he wants the players to step up further and really show what they are capable of.
