Dale Gorman believes his Yeovil Town team-mates can still give the National League’s top sides a fright if they can get a run of results together.

The Northern Irishman returns from a two-match suspension for tomorrow’s visit to Notts County and admits he has been frustrated to see the Glovers pick up just one point from trips to Maidenhead United and Chesterfield.

Tomorrow, they face a Notts County side who sit in the table’s final play-off position with 14 points more on the board than their visitors.

Speaking ahead of the match, Gorman said: “They are in the play-off places which is where we want to be and if need to go there and get on a run now and, if we can start doing that, teams above us will see us coming and start feeling the pressure.”

He added that he felt the team was not getting the rub of the green having created at least three clear cut opportunities and seen Tom Knowles’ effort come back off the woodwork just moments before Chesterfield scored a winner last weekend.

The midfielder added: “The little bit of luck you need sometimes, we are not getting it. You take the situation at Chesterfield, there are things we have looked at which we know we can do to prevent that, but we have to set standards for ourselves now.

There’s 15 games to go now, so we have to just try and win as many of those as we can and you never know where it could take us.

The form we are in does not do us justice, I don’t think. We have been playing well and the work rate we put in is there for all to see and we are being hard done by at the moment.

We are one or two goals away from some really good results and hopefully on Saturday the tide turns for us.”

The 25-year-old was brought to Huish Park from Northern Irish side Glentoran in the summer and, if he is selected to face Notts tomorrow, it will be his 30th appearance of the game.

He said: “This is probably the most consistent I have been in my career, the manager (Darren Sarll) has a big part of in that and this is the most I have enjoyed my football in the past few years.

“It’s an enjoyable environment and high standards here which have to be met, so the work we put in day in and out which is incredible.”
