Yeovil Town midfielder Tom Knowles spoke to BBC Somerset following his brace in the 3-1 win over King’s Lynn Town, but insisted it was a return to winning ways after three consecutive defeats that mattered more.
“It is always nice to get a goal, but the main thing is getting three points. It is why you play football, to get three points and win games . It has been a tough spell and things like this do happen in football and it is all about how you bounce back. You have got to go on to the next one and we have been lucky this season that when it has been tough there is always another game right around the corner. It has not gone our way the past couple of games, we have been working hard and you can see today it has come off for us and we have got the three points.”
Knowles now seven goals for the Glovers since his arrival from Cambridge in December with Saturday’s game marking his 30th game for Darren Sarll’s side.
Speaking about his goals, Knowles said: “The first one Reuben (Reid) and Josh (Neufville) set a really good press and I was just behind it and luckily they found me and not the defender and I went through and scored. The second one was something I like to do, get on the half turn and shoot from a little bit further out, I do like to score good goals, so two different goals but I was very happy with both of them.”
Turning his attention to Tuesday night’s home game with Maidenhead United with supporters back inside Huish Park, the attacker said he is looking forward to making his first appearance in front of the fans.
He said: “I have not been fortunate enough to play in front of them yet, but I can’t wait, I am really looking forward to playing in front of them on Tuesday… I have heard really good things (about the fans) talking to the lads. They can really get behind us and drive us on and hopefully we can reward them with another three points. Everything we do is for the fans because they pay their hard-earned money to come and watch us, so we need to put in the performances because that is what we get paid to do.”
Knowles added that he had loved his first season with the Glovers, but was excited at the prospect of what the club could achieve next year.
He added: “I am really looking forward to next season, we have got a good base and if we can finish this year strongly, who says we can’t get promoted next season? We are a big club, a big team and we all want to play League football, so that is definitely going to be the aim for next year.”
