Chris Hargreaves

Manager Chris Hargreaves and goal-scoring wing-back Jamie Reckord have both said Yeovil Town are looking to put a run together as they travel to in-form Wealdstone on Bank Holiday Monday.

Speaking to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins following victory over Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday the pair were unanimous their opponent’s form didn’t matter, it was about how Yeovil could impact the game.

Hargreaves said: “They’ve recruited players of a good standard they’ve obviously pushed the boat out to do that.

“They’re a good team, they’re an attacking threat, they’ve got some pace and we’ve got focus on that and how we can affect them with our football, but our resilience has got to carry on into that next game.

“The lads have just said it in the changing room, that’s their focus now, they know they can defend, they know they can listen to information and play different shapes”

With just under 48 hours between matches, Hargreaves said that recovery was key and that might have to affect their roast dinner on Sunday.

He added: “The boys have got to enjoy winning today, cos that’s what this game is about, recover quickly, not have too many pigs in blankets tomorrow and chocolate pudding and relax.

“I can’t quite believe this fixture pile up already, it’s ridiculous, it’s got to stop, it’s dangerous, that’s annoyed me, but we’ve got to deal with, get on with it.”

Similar thoughts were shared by Reckord whose third goal in five games gave Hargreaves his first win as Glovers boss.

The former Wrexham man said: “Everyone is in the same boat, they’ve (Wealdstone) have played today like us, I just think if everyone recovers well and does the right thing, there’s no excuse on Monday, we just keep going.

“They’ve started well, but it’s not about them it’s about us, we won today, and I’m confident about getting three points on Monday.”

Wealdstone go in to the game full of confidence having hit the top of the National League table with a 1-0 win at Gateshead courtesy of a goal from former Glover Rhys Browne.
