Two-goal hero Alex Fisher has said he is enjoying working under new Yeovil Town manager Mark Cooper after a man of the match performance in the 3-1 home win over bottom club Gateshead.

The striker’s brace moved him ahead of wing-back Jamie Reckord to be the club’s top scorer – albeit with only four goals in the first 18 matches – and he is hoping the team can start to find some form under the new manager.

Speaking to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins after the game, he said: “It’s been a good transition (with the new manager taking over), he has a lot of ideas and I know a lot of his teams play a lot of good football.

It’s not the sort of thing you can just implement overnight, it’s more incremental changes week by week and I hope to think this will be the start of some really positive displays.”

He added: “He’s come in, he’s tried to simplify my game to make things easier for me and with a few of the other guys and it’s worked really well. I’m just really happy I have been able to notch a couple today and I just hope this form can continue.

Fisher played alongside wingers Andrew Oluwaborie and Anthony Georgiou in a three-man attack which switched to a front two alongside the on loan Peterborough United man after a tactical tweak by the manager.

Of the impact of the new players, Fisher added: “They are great guys with a great attitude and you can see they have added a lot to us. They are very comfortable on the ball and get it in dangerous areas and I hope it’s as exciting to watch as it is to play in.

It was a great team performance, I think any of us could be standing here with (the man of the match award). It was nice to get a couple of goals and good to score three at home for the first time this season, we’re delighted with the three points.

You have to give (the fans) something to get behind and I think we are starting to do that. I don’t think you could ever have questioned anyone’s commitment in any of the games up to this point, but you want to be scoring goals at home and three today feels right.
