Frank Nouble wants his Yeovil Town team-mates to rid themselves of the “nervous energy” to help lift the losing feeling around the club.

The experienced striker, who joined in the summer following his exit from Torquay United, said he felt the feeling of “here we go again” after the opening day defeat against Hemel Hempstead Town.

Speaking on Thursday ahead of the opening home match of the season against St Albans City, he said: “On Saturday I felt it ‘oh not another defeat’. I just want to dismiss this feeling of ‘here we go again’, I don’t want to swear but that is how it felt.

We have another game now and another chance to prove ourselves again and whoever we play Saturday and in the games coming up, they will feel a much different Yeovil Town to the one I saw last weekend.

He added: “There was a nervous energy which you have to turn that in to a fearless attitude, whatever happens, happens but I am going to give everything.

You can still give everything and still be nervous and it takes voices in the dressing room to change that as the game goes on.

Nothing is going to go perfectly, but we want to make sure that next time there is an away following like that we have to make them proud of our performance – win, lose or draw.

The 31-year-old started up front last weekend alongside Rhys Murphy and Jordan Maguire-Drew and admitted he was not happy with his own performance.

He said: “I did not think I got to show the physical aspects which I can show in a game or my dribbling, so I know I was not as effective as I could have been in the game.

Hopefully that will change on Saturday and hopefully the style of play that we approach the game with will be a bit more like how we want to do things here.
