Worthington enjoying midfield role

Yeovil Town midfielder Matt Worthington spoke to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins following the Glovers’ 1-0 win over Barnet on Saturday.

Following praise from his manager both before and after the game, the former Bournemouth man was in great spirits at both the team’s form and his own contribution.

Worthington has started ten out of the eleven matches which make up the unbeaten run with the only exception being the Somerset Premier Cup victory at Larkhall Athletic.

“I am enjoying it, liking getting in the box and making some chances and we have a really good balance in there with (Josh) Staunton and (Dale) Gorman.
“Staunts settles the ship and feeds me and Gorman and we try and feed the strikers, so it is a good balance.

“In front of home fans, they come out and support us, the three points is important and a clean sheet is massive as well, the back four were brilliant again today.

“We are looking up (the table) but we are staying level-headed, we know we have to come in next week, keep putting the hard work in and keep ticking off the games and getting the points on the board.
“Cup competitions and runs are great, but we just want to keep winning so we’ll just be looking to get another result next time out.

He suggested that he was looking forward to the FA Cup tie against his former club, Bournemouth but reiterated that it was a case of ‘one game at a time’ for the in form Glovers.
