Yeovil Town playmaker Jordan Maguire-Drew has said that he only sees good things for the future of the team, and the club as a whole as he rounded off a great week with a Man of the Match performance against St Albans on Saturday.

Speaking to the club’s YouTube channel, he said that the assist, the win and the performance capped off a positive week.

“It’s about winning and getting that first win on the board in front of a great crowd, they were brilliant.

“There’s been a lot of pressure on us this week, because last week was not good enough (against Hemel) by our standards, we had a lot of travelling fans we let down and we’ve put it right.”

“It could have three or four extra goals, but that’ll come and hopefully we can take all the positives into Tuesday”

There was some confusion for the Glovers’ first goal of the game, a JM-D cross may or may not have been touched by Jake Hyde on the way in (Hyde is very much claiming it) but the Press Association and the stadium announcer gave it to the Glovers’ number 10.

However, Maguire-Drew isn’t worried if it is classed as his or not.

“If I score or set one up, so long as it goes in… that’s what I’m there to do, create and score goals so an assist is as good as a goal for me”

JM-D says that the attacking unit are still in the process of getting to know each other and that the bond that the likes of Hyde, Frank Nouble and Rhys Murphy have will only grow as the season grows.

”We should have scored more goals but that’ll come, the main point of today was to get three points and we did that, in front of a great crowd, hopefully we can repeat that on Tuesday”

“It’s always nice to win a game of football, but it’s always nice to do it in front of your home fans and to keep them coming back, because they help us massively – they don’t realise it, but they do”

This past week saw the midfielder sign a new contract at Huish Park, something which JM-D says was an easy decision.

“It’s an easy one really, this club is only going one way, I believe and I wanted to be a part of it, I just want to keep building, to stay fit and keep going and keep building and hopefully we can get that golden prize at the end of the season that everyone is aiming for.”
