Luke Wilkinson and Reuben Reid celebrate vs Stevenage. ? Mike Kunz.

Yeovil Town defender Luke Wilkinson has said he has appreciated the fans’ support as the season draws to a close.

Following a really positive turnout of fans against Barnet.

Saturday (against Barnet) we felt we should have won from our recent little run we had been on.”

“It was a brilliant turnout (of Yeovil fans) they never stopped singing for us and cheering us on, it was absolutely brilliant”

“People might say we’ve got nothing to play for, but we have, we’ve got pride and we want to win as many games as well can between now and the end of the season and see where that puts us”.

Wilkinson, who has played in each of the last couple of games despite an injury scare said how he, along with other senior players have had to step up to help interim manager Charlie Lee.

(Charlie Lee) has openly come to us and asked, and said I’m going to lean on you guys for your help, we could see that last weekend with Josh Staunton helping during the game and in the warm up.

“We’re happy to do that, Charlie is the interim manager, his decision goes, but if he ever needs our help, we are always there to back him up”

Meanwhile, the hunt for Luke’s first goal of the season continues,

I’ve been saying it for weeks now, I should have scored… I’m trying my best to get on the end of things, hopefully one of them will fly in soon”

“It’s been really frustrating, the chance on Saturday, I really should have scored that one, I was really disappointed at the time, but there’s been other ones during the season. That’s definitely a goal of mine to get at least a couple before the end of the season.”

The central defender might not have been overly pleased with the Gloverscast reminding him he has found a goal every season since 2013/14, but not yet this one… Best get your head on one then Wilko!
