Yeovil Town defender Morgan Williams has said that the Glovers have put the Monday madness behind them and the focus has fully switched to Chelmsford on Saturday.

Speaking to the club’s YouTube channel, the former Glovies player of the year said;

“The gaffer gave us a couple of days off just to forget about Monday and rest and recover our bodies as it was a busy weekend playing on Saturday and Monday, obviously that’s difficult to do.

So we had a couple of days off to rest and recover and get our minds away from Monday, we touched on it a bit in training yesterday (Thursday) and watched a few clips, we know where we went wrong, we didn’t turn up to the game, we were poor for the whole 90 minutes.

We’re all in a good head space at the moment, feeling positive about the Chelmsford game, and we’ve got to take it from there.”

The team had a meeting on Thursday to go over the previous weekend’s action, but quickly turned toward preparations for Saturday and a tough game against high flying Chelmsford.

“Thursday morning, we ironed everything out, what we did wrong, where we could have improved and why we didn’t win the game. 

After that, you have that meeting, you forget about it, move on, we’ve got 40-odd games left, we can’t dwell on bad performances, we have to build and build and build.”

Williams was, for a short time in the second half, named as the Glovers’ captain, with no Josh Staunton or Matt Worthington on the pitch, he donned the armband;

“It was just in the moment, Worthy has gone down, I’m next to him and he’d just said, ‘you have the armband’ – that was a nice little privilege to hold that.”

Next to tick off the list for Williams is goals… after coming close on a couple of occasions, he’s desperate to make the score sheet, sooner rather than later.

“Last season, I wasn’t good enough getting in the box and I didn’t get a goal, this year I’ve got a target for what I want to get and hopefully I hit that.”

Looking ahed, he agreed that the game would be tough, but with another big crowd behind them, they can keep Huish Park as the fortress it is becoming.

“No, we know that every team on their day can be a good team, we’ve just got to be at our best and hopefully get the three points. 

We’ve built a fortress here, I think we need to do that, if we can be consistent at home and then try and build on our performances away that’s really going to help us this season, the fans have been class both away and at home.”
