Yeovil Town midfielder Lawson D’Ath was on media duties following the Glovers’ 0-0 with Maidenhead on Tuesday night.

The game represented the first game at Huish Park in over a year with supporters in the ground, something which Lawson said made a huge difference.

“It was class to have the fans back, especially when we came out for the warm up to a big cheer, and it just shows how much we’ve missed them, it gives you that extra yard.”

After the game he tweeted his pleasure at seeing Huish Park back to it’s best.

D’Ath surprised not just fans but Darren Sarll too by recovering from a frustrating season with injury to return and put in a couple of top quality performances, possibly ahead of schedule.

On his fitness, the former Reading man said;

“I am putting myself out there and trying to get the fitness going, it is hard work. I am happy, I did not think I would feel this good, to be honest, especially last Tuesday (at Aldershot) coming off the bench, I really felt like I was blowing a bit. But ,Saturday (against King’s Lynn) I felt really good. I don’t know where it came from but I managed to do alright. Today, I had moments where I felt heavy but it is going to be like that playing Saturday and then Tuesday.”

Finally, with one eye on the future, D’Ath signalled the Glovers’ intent to finish the season strong.

“We did well on Saturday and we have done well tonight and now we have to take that on to our last two games and take that in to next season. It is vital that we finish strong this season to take the form in to next year.”

Lawson D’Ath is one of a number of players out of contract this summer, with his recent form putting him in line for an extended deal during the off season.
