Max Hunt isn’t looking back after falling out of favour earlier this season. The towering centre-back, who has started every game under Mark Cooper, told BBC Somerset he is in enjoying life under the new boss.

Speaking after a clean sheet at Notts County, he said: “It’s always difficult [being out of the side]. You’re always going to have these spells as a footballer, it’s a game of opinions and sometimes you’re in favour and sometimes you’re out of it.

“It’s nothing personal you just have to get on with it [and] roll your sleeves up. I trained hard while I wasn’t involved and then since the new gaffer came in he decided to put me in against Maidstone and I’ve sort of made it my choice to not look back since.”

Hunt was at the heart of a Yeovil defence that became the first travelling side to keep Notts County out at Meadow Lane this season. He said knew it was going to be an ugly afternoon.

“We knew it was going to be a tough game coming in, probably the toughest we faced so far. We had a set gameplan all week to come here and be hard to beat and it wasn’t pretty and the fans won’t have had much to cheer about today but you know how they supported us at the end [that] they understand the value of the point.

“We know how good a footballing side they [Notts County] are and it was important that with the occasion, the fans and everything, we’d come here and put a stop to it.”

Hunt also spoke about how the squad managed to stay together during the difficult period earlier in the season.

“It’s important that we made sure we kept that togetherness, because when your struggling and results aren’t going your way, if you get yourself down as well you’ve not really got a good place to go.

“We made sure we kept our foundation strong and the new gaffer has come in and showed a real confidence in us. He’s got a long-term plan of how he wants us playing and were just sort of building towards that.”
