Yeovil recorded an important win against Weston-super-Mare on Tuesday, here are Dave’s conclusions from watching on the stream…

Morgan on the rise. In his post-match questions, BBC Somerset reporter Ian Randall spoke about the importance of the goals Morgan Williams has scored this season – and boy did he have a point. A late equaliser at home to Chelmsford, at late winner at Worthing, a winner at Bath City, and now a vital winner against Weston-super-Mare on the night our nearest rivals slipped up. But, what is even more impressive is that this time he did it in a match when he had not played well. He was at fault for Weston’s equaliser and, at times, struggled to maintain an impressive Weston side. As Mark Cooper said afterwards, that says everything you need to know about his character.

Missing the poophousery: The first half saw a Yeovil Town side which was too nice. Great opening 10 minutes, great opening goal, great start, then we looked soft. There was a Charlie Cooper shaped hole in the midfield and that allowed Weston to do what they wanted and they did. Things changed it the second half but let’s not underestimate the importance of a bit of poophousery.

Thanks Welling: Who loses 4-1 away at Welling, eh? Yeah, you got the joke. Mark Cooper may say he does not look at anything else other than the stats on his next opponent, but be assured he will have recognised the significance of winning on a night our nearest rivals did the opposite.

Rhys Murphy scores goals

Don’t underestimate the players we’re missing: Rhys Murphy, Jake Hyde, Charlie Cooper, Alex Whittle, Olly Thomas months of Jordan Stevens missing, how many squads in any division could hope with such absences? Take Ollie Pearce out of Worthing’s side and are they the same team? Rhys Murphy has had a similar impact on our season. It’s great to know that there’s a chance of Cooper and Whittle returning for Chelmsford with Thomas not far behind, we’re going to need them.

Saturday’s another big one: 13 points clear at the top of that table, air smells great up here, eh? But, Chelmsford this weekend will be another big examination. Over the last ten games they have the same amount of points as we do, but a lot of their success has come on the road. Get out of there unscathed and….
