Mark Little warms up at Chesterfield 📸 Ben Barrett

Yeovil Town defender Mark Little spoke to BBC Somerset after the 2-2 draw at King’s Lynn Town and said how there’s no sign the side are going to take it easy, in any single match or in the rest of the season as a whole.

The right-back said: “Circumstances altogether, I think it took us six hours to get here, the pitch is horrendous, it’s windy, they’re scrapping for their lives.

“It was never going to be a pretty game of football… it was a battle and we stood up to the battle.”

It was Charlie Wakefield’s last gasp equaliser that saved the Glovers’ blushes, something which Little said he’s chuffed about.

He said: “It’s great for him, Charlie works so hard, he’s desperate to be on the scoresheet every week and it hasn’t been coming off but he’s got his goal today.

“It looks like Charlie Lee has made the best decision ever to leave him out and bring him on at the right time, it makes him look a really good manager.”

It was a feisty game with both teams reduced to ten men, something which Little admits they had to keep on top of.

He added: “We wanted to win the game, we had the momentum, when we came out for the second half, I think we were on top, we were the only side who were going to go on and win it

“The last eight minutes was frantic, there plenty of chances and edge of the seat stuff.

“Credit to the boys for keeping going for 97 minutes.”

The former Bristol City man was asked about the team’s motivation for carrying on with their never give up style and he said that players were fighting to the end.

He said: “We are all playing for our careers, we are all playing to impress the people that are watching.

“Since Charlie (Lee) has come in, we said you can have a nine game season of letting the season fizzle out or we can have a right go and show everyone what we are made of.

“We just want to get as close up the table as we can.

“It’s interesting here, because so many lads are out of contract, near enough 90% of the team are thinking I’ve got another year here, I’ll take my foot off the gas and there’s nothing to play for and I’ll have a holiday until next year

“That won’t happen here, the group of lads are amazing and we’ve got senior lads who are amazing who won’t allow that to happen.”
