Yeovil Town goalkeeper Grant Smith spoke to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins after the game against Woking on Tuesday and, in a wide ranging interview, spoke about the teams perceived lack of confidence and how they’d be working hard to turn the form around.

“I don’t think it’s confidence, I just think it’s the way games pan out at the moment, we’re trying to hold on, whether it’s for the 1-0 win or just holding on for the clean sheet i just think we’re adding more and more pressure… eventually, teams can’t defend for 90 minutes.”

The “Best ‘Keeper In The League (Barrett, B Nov ’22) told Sheridan that he’s pleased with his own performances but that it counts for little in the grand scheme of things.

Personally, I feel like I’ve been doing OK, but it’s a team game and at the end of the day if we’re not picking up results, it doesn’t matter how good or bad you do.”

With no First Round FA Cup game this weekend Smith hopes the break between games will serve his side well as they adjust to life under a new manager.

I think this weekend, not having a game, could be a blessing because now we can spend some hours on the training pitch and hopefully the manager can play and put into shape what he wants from us and we’ve got enough time now before the next game now, we can put it from practice.”

The Glovers host Maidenhead United next Tuesday before Adi Yussuf’s Gateshead visit Huish Park the following Saturday.
