Yeovil Town stand-in skipper Josh Staunton has hailed the spirit of the team after a 2-0 win at big-spending Wrexham.

He scored his first goal for the club after 64 minutes at a wet and windy Racecourse Ground and put in another solid performance against one of the division’s promotion favourites.

The win stretches the unbeaten run to nine games and sees the Glovers unbeaten throughout January with 10 points from their last 12.

Speaking to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins, Staunton said: “Money buys you certain things, but we are here for Yeovil (Town) Football Club and the spirit and heart we have that is priceless.

“We have been showing that this last month with some results where we have dug in, tonight we stood up where we needed to and we have come out with a result regardless of resources.

I have been in teams where there has been a lot more experience, but the heart in some of those young lads, especially key players like Mossy who are not Yeovil players like Mossy (Dan Moss) who is not (a contracted player).

“You can’t ask for much more, they have been giving everything and when we have been tested with a small squad, every player has stood up and you can’t ask much more.”

Staunton was full of praise for his defensive team-mates who were excellent against a star-studded Wrexham frontline including big money summer signings Paul Mullin and Jake Hyde.

He added: “I thought the back four were excellent today, young Hunty alongside me and the two full-backs.

“Morgan Williams stepping in at left-back was a different class, some of the headers he won at the back stick and even just coming inside on his right foot was excellent.

“It is not easy stepping in when you have been out in the cold, coming back from injury.”
