Yates Believes In The Players

Yates Believes In The Players

Having already declared our play off ambitions this season to be over, manager Mark Yates has admitted the pressure to get a win is starting to tell but he has faith in the squad to get it right and then keep getting it right after a very inconsistent season.

Speaking to the Official Site ahead of this weekend's encounter with Wycombe Wanderers, the gaffer said that the players have to step up to the plate, and they need to show their characters to come out of this season with a smile on their faces.

'We need characters, men, and we have got that but we can't keep talking about it because we have got to do it. It'll be a good game for us, it'll be a tight one because both teams are not in massive runs of form but there's enough in our dressing room and enough about us to galvanise ourselves.'

Yates goes on to say that now more than ever the group need to stand up to be counted, and although he can point to a few who did in our last game, it wasn't enough of them to make the difference - the frustration for him is he knows they all can, but for whatever reason it just hasn't been happening for us.

Speaking more generally, Yates again repeats that we have been losing games because we haven't cut out the errors we have been making, and then we simply haven't been clinical enough at the opposite end. Put those two together and you lose.

Whilst he'd never set us up to go out and get a one nil ugly win, he does admit that if that's what it takes to get us some momentum he'd take a few ugly one nil wins to get us on a roll now.

I doubt there's many who wouldn't take a ball in off the backside if it meant three points at this stage.
