Yeovil Town boss Darren Sarll believes top-scorer Joe Quigley is in “the form of his life” this season.

But, the manager said the six-goal striker is showing signs of fatigue having started the opening 12 matches of the season.

Quigley was dropped to the bench for the midweek win over Woking appearing as a 62nd-minute substitute for Adi Yussuf in the 2-0 win.

The manager said: “Joe’s ascent to where he is now is brilliant, but I can see a fatigue in Joe where he has had to carry his department in this team.

“He has had to lead the line and be the experienced head and I can see a fatigue I have never seen before.

“Saturday at Grimsby is the first time I have seen that. He has been fabulous, but he will need rest and recuperation like the rest of them will.

“I am telling him ‘you are my guy’ and you’ve got to play every minute of every game, and he’s now breaking down new walls in how to play more minutes.

The manager added that Quigley had scored more goals in green-and-white than for the rest of the clubs he has played for in his career – which is almost right.

Quigley has scored 24 goals for 12 different clubs before arriving at Yeovil, though he had two loans spells at both Gillingham and Woking, making it 14 spells at different clubs.

However, his 18 goals in his 51 appearances for Yeovil is the most goals he has scored for one club by a clear distance.

He did manage five goals in a nine-game loan spell at Woking in the 2015-16 season.
