Yeovil Town on loan striker Reo Griffiths has said he is fit and ready to play if and when required by manager Mark Cooper.

In an interview with the Somerset County Gazette, the former Tottenham Hotspur man has said he is “desperate” to played a little over an hour in two substitute appearances since joining on loan from League One side Doncaster Rovers at the start of March.

The 22-year-old has not featured since appearing off the bench in the 1-0 defeat to Bromley three weeks ago despite the Glovers being the lowest scorers in the National League.

Griffiths said: “I’m desperate to play and help the team stay in the National League. I’m 100% fit and ready to score some goals for the team.

I have been patiently waiting for my chance and I know the fans have been asking why I’m not playing but I honestly don’t know why.

I was brought in to score goals and that’s what I would love to do for the club and fans.

We have incredible fans and they travel up and down the country spending hard earned money to watch us.

We have four cup finals left and there is enough quality in the building for us to score goals and finish on a high.

I’m really fired up for the challenge ahead and whilst we still have a chance of staying up we have to fight for that.

Griffiths has  missed out due to loanee rules on a number of occasions but has travelled to games with the squad including at Halifax where he did extensive post match running.

It was following that game, Mark Cooper had said the frontman had “missed training.”
