Tom Knowles is hoping his partnership with fellow forward Charlie Wakefield can prove as prolific as the one he enjoyed last season with loanee Josh Neufville.

He got on the scoresheet for the first time in his last outing at Huish Park when Wakefield bagged the other in a 2-0 win.

Speaking ahead of the weekend’s home game with Eastleigh, Knowles said: “Chaz is similar to Josh last season, they have raw, out and out pace and really good technical ability so from last year when I scored a few goals, that was the recipe we had.

“Add (Joe Quigley) in to that and Adi (Yussuf) as well and hopefully now after scoring a few last weekend we will kick on and keep contributing.”

The 23-year-old was in fine form in the closing stages of last season weighing in with five goals in the final two months of an otherwise disappointing campaign.

He revealed he has been speaking with manager Darren Sarll about how to manage his frustration at not finding the net.

The wideman said: “We’ve had a few conversations and I am my own biggest critic, whether I misplace a pass or whatever I will be annoyed.

“It’s more about knowing myself and my own game, knowing I might not do everything perfectly but that is okay, just do a job for the team.

“I am learning more about dealing with my frustration but that is because I want to do well and do my bit for the team.”
