“Yeovil are a really good side, I’ve watched their games and they’re a really big powerful side who are doing very well in the league.

“It’s going to be a really tough game but I don’t really look at the form or the table because it’s all about what happens on the day and there’s very little to “choose between teams in this league and every team is capable of going on a run.
