Yeovil Town midfielder Lawson D’ath has admitted there is a sense of frustration in the Glovers’ camp, but is backing the side to come out of the other side with a win, sooner rather than later.

Speaking to the BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins, he said; “The good thing is we are playing well as a team. I have been in teams before where we’ve not been playing well and losing every week, but the positive for us is we are playing well and creating lots of chances.

“We just need to switch on as a group and make sure we are compact and hard to beat but still creating the chances as well.

“It is just taking that little bit of responsibility, as individuals and as a unit, and if we do that the results will come.

“We are really disappointed because we should win today, we should win Tuesday (against Barnet) and we should win Saturday (against Wrexham) and then it’s a different story.

“The luck is not on our side, but I know if we keep playing the way we are we are going to go on a good run.”

But, there was no excuses to be made, with a young squad with plenty of inexperience, D’Ath wasn’t prepared to offer up any excuses for a lack of a victory yet this season.

“We are not that young any more, we have some younger players, but it’s a good mix. Youth is not an excuse any more.

“We have a number of players who have played a couple of seasons now, it’s about stepping up. Since my injuries I have grown up a lot more, having gone through all that and coming in to the side last year and trying to be that older guy who could help some of the young lads keep going and help them with their games.

“Normally I am someone who does my own thing, but I have come to the age where I have to take that responsibility and it’s the same with Jamie Reckord, Josh Staunton,  the older ones, we are all talking.

“We have it there, it’s just little things happening and maybe it is a bit of inexperienced. But I have been in experienced dressing rooms and got worse results, so it’s about us keeping believing and we’ll start getting wins.”

D’Ath also spoke about how much he is enjoying playing in a new style, with the ball on the deck and flowing through midfield far more with he and Matt Worthington showing a new, exciting level to their performances.

“Everything the manager is doing I am enjoying and I think we are playing my best football since my first year here.

“It’s about us keeping going and believing and following the Gaffer’s orders and that luck will change, I think.”

Speaking to the Gloverscast’s Ben Barrett he then said: “Having watched Worthy, he’s done unbelievably and is showing what a good player he is. We all know he can run, work hard and get the ball back, but it’s definitely been a different Worthy this year.

“He’s taking more responsibility and looking like a really good player. He just needs to keep going every week and keep doing what he’s doing and he’ll have a good future whether with us or with someone else.

On his own fitness, the former Reading man said he was feeling good despite being taken off just before the end, completing 89 minutes in the pink and purple of the Glovers: “I felt good, I felt fit, maybe towards the end of the first half I was blowing a bit. I came out in the second half and felt really good, so it was nice. It has been frustrating because it’s not anything major, I’ve just had a minor quad problem. I played 45 on Tuesday and felt fine, but for whatever reason it just tightened up. I’m alright now.”
