Jake Wannell scored two for the Glovers in the 4-2 win against Tonbridge Angels, and the defender said he felt confident attacking set pieces after working on hard on it training this week.

Speaking to BBC Somerset’s Ian Randall, Wannell was “100%” claiming the first: “It was on target and just took a little nick off the defender and luckily went in.[I’m] claiming it. I’ve got a target in mind that I’m close to. How many games that left now? 15 games? I need a couple more and I’m happy.

“Every time we had a set piece, I was confident today. Sometimes you get a feeling when going up for a corner or a free kick that you’ve got the better of your man and luckily today I did.

“We’ve been working on it [set pieces] this week. We feel like we haven’t been having a lot of joy with our set pieces as of late. So this week we regrouped, switched up our runs, started a little bit deeper and different kind of technique of a cross coming in and it’s it paid dividends there,” he said.

Yeovil started strong, scoring two early goals and despite an uncharacteristic error from Michael Smith, the Glovers rode out a tricky spell until half time.

“We actually started the game the best we probably started in a long time, so the goal came at a difficult time for us. Smithy, he’s been unbelievable for us, so it’s so out of character, but I thought we dealt with it well and got to half time, discussed what we could do better in the second-half and I feel like we dealt with that.”

With no fixture until Havant & Waterlooville next weekend, Wannell said he and his teammates would regroup ahead of Saturday, and that he’s not looking too far ahead. 

“It’s called the business end in football terms, but we’re not looking too far ahead. We’re just trying to tick off every game as it comes and that’s it.”
