Yeovil Town striker Joe Quigley spoke to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins following the Glovers’ 2-1 win over Aldershot.

Quigley, who scored both Yeovil goals, said both he and the team were glad to be off and running at the second time of asking.

“It’s (getting a win) something, off the back of last season and how long it took us to get the first win, to get it in the 2nd game is massive.”

Quigley now has three goals in two games and is pleased with how he has started the season.

“I had a really good pre-season, I felt sharp in pre-season and I’m glad it’s coming out in the (competitive) games… but I definitely should have had a third!”

Quigley has taken on a more senior role at the head of Yeovil’s attack with the injury to Reuben Reid and departure of Rhys Murphy, something which the number 10 is happy to take on.

“I’ve got people around me who help just as much, supplying the balls and being just as much a part of scoring the goals.”

There was praise not only for his duo of strike partners, Sonny Blu Lo-Everton and Adi Yussuf, but the biggest praise was set aside for the fans who Quigley said spurred the team on.

“It makes such a difference – it lifts the lads. 80th minute, it’s 1-1 and you can hear the crowd signing and it lifts the lads massively. It almost forces the ball into the net.”

After two games in 48 hours to kick start the season, the team will have a little extra rest with a late kick off when Halifax Town visit for the live game on Saturday where Joe Quigley will be hoping to continue in his goal scoring form.
