'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Yates Looking For Back To Back Wins

Manager Mark Yates has called on the team to build on last weekend's victory over Newport County, and back it up by taking another three points when we face Chesterfield tomorrow evening.

Speaking to the Official Site ahead of the game, the gaffer said that he feels the Newport win could be massive for us as we look to get ourselves on a much better run of form as the season comes to an end, but that will only prove to be the case if we back it up with a good result against Chesterfield now.

'I think Saturday could be massive but what we have to ensure is that, when we speak on Thursday, we have managed to build on the performance, resilience, and character we showed. We have been out of sorts recently but we have shown what we can be about. We showed tenacity, good football and we scored a good goal as well as limiting a team who scores at home every week to not scoring at all and not having too many chances. It gives us something to build on.'

Yates goes on to say that he thought the back line in front of Scott during the game were absolutely superb and everyone did their job on the day and that's the kind of commitment and consistency he wants us to show between now and the end of the season.

'It was far more like what we're after. If we put in more performances like that then we will be higher in the table.'

The gaffer goes on to say that when you lose in football it can be a lonely and sad time over the weekend, but he thoroughly enjoyed last weekend and got home with a smile on his face again and he wants more of that obviously as he hasn't been able to do that enough so far this season, and he hopes the players felt the same way when they got home as well because they more than earned it on Saturday.

Describing Chesterfield as the best team we played earlier in the season, going for back to back victories will certainly be a tough test for the players but again it's down to how we play and how we approach things as we know we can take victories when we are on top of our game, and we will have to be on Tuesday night.
