Yeovil Town defender Alex Whittle was named as the Glovers’ Man of the Match by the match sponsor on Tuesday night, he was pleased with the 2-1 win over Truro but suggested that the side could have done even more,

Speaking to the YTFC YouTube channel the former York City man said;

“We huffed and puffed first half, I don’t think we were really at it, but towards the last 15-minutes of the first half we started getting in the game a bit, we tweaked the formation a bit, I thought that worked.

In the second half, they hit us on the break and scored, but in the last 20 minutes, we stuck together and came on strong, they were getting tired and we eventually wore them down, and you can’t beat a last minute winner.

“…we eventually wore them down, and you can’t beat a last minute winner.”

You’ve just got to work hard, we had that little bit of quality in the end, we’ve got good players but we’re still learning, we’re still clicking, it’s still early days, but we’re a new team and hopefully we can keep getting the wins.”

Goals from Olly Thomas and Jake Wannell set Yeovil on their way to victory after being 1-0 down, something which Whittle things is partly down the group as a whole working as a unit;

“It’s a good set of lads, everyone is together, that just shows at the end with the last minute winner- we kept going and you’d rather score a last minute winner like that wouldn’t you!?

It’s (settling in at Yeovil) been good, it’s a good pitch, good set of lads, good manager, we try and play the right way, obviously, it’s early days, but I’m hoping we’ll get better as it goes on.

The end goal has got to be promotion, but we’ve got to be in and around it, that’s two home wins now and we need to back that up again on Saturday, Maidstone are a decent team and we’re going to have to play better than we did today.”
