Yeovil Town winger Charlie Wakefield spoke to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins following the Glovers’ 1-0 home win over FC Halifax Town on Saturday and was delighted to secure not just a second win on the bounce, but also the team’s first clean sheet.
“It was a bit like Monday (vs Aldershot), we had to dig deep, it was an unbelievable atmosphere, Monday was an unbelievable atmosphere with the away fans and we’ve managed to do it again
“That’s our third game where we’ve come in at half time 1-0 up, first one (vs King’s Lynn) we lost a man, we let it slip, but to show the character to bounce back and get the win.
“I always feel like we enjoy these more than a 4-0 or 5-0, where you have to dig real deep, when the final whistle goes and you see the fans like that – it was some atmosphere, huh?”
On his own performances and his introduction to the Glovers’ team the former Chelsea academy product says he’s adapted his game for the good of the team.
“Normally I’d be a bit running at the ball (Editor’s Note; I think he means defence!), I’m a very direct player, I’ve been working, I feel like I’ve been working hard for the team and i’m enjoying that, I want to work, I want to be the one that puts the shift in for the boys, for the club.”
Wakefield was quick to highlight the performances of both Joe Quigley – who’s goal separated the two sides – and Max Hunt as a rock in defence during the win over the Shaymen.
“Joe, has been unbelievable hasn’t he? Unreal, when you’ve got someone on form like him, he goes into every game confident that he’s going to score – which helps me, if I go down the line, nine times out of ten, when you’re striker’s on form, he’s gunna put it in, so I get a bit of credit too!
“We are all in a really happy place… you want to work that extra mile, you want to put that extra yard in for the person next to you.
“Hunty (Max Hunt), at the end, his tackle, unreal, not only going forward are we clinical with Joe, but those sort of tackles means we get the win.”
Wakefield finished off the interview by saying there was no fear heading into next weekend’s game against Stockport, the team, he says couldn’t be going into the clash any more confident.
