Matt Worthington has said he is comfortable with switching positions under Yeovil Town manager Mark Cooper having played a wing-back in the 2-0 home win over Torquay United on New Year’s Day.

The 25-year-old is perhaps better known as an industrious midfielder but has found himself playing in a more forward role and now at wing-back under the new boss.

Speaking after the game to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins, he said: “Under this Gaffer you need to be versatile and play wherever he needs you to play, today it was right wing-back but as long as I am on the pitch, I don’t mind where I am playing.

Worthington popped up with the opening goal in the 81st minute at Huish Park following a tough afternoon against a Torquay side who were desperate for points to improve their own league position.

Worthy added: “Playing at wing back is is a real adjustment, the first half was a bit difficult to get my legs going and it is a tough role getting up and down.

But I knew that come the second half I would be much fitter than the person I was up against, but I am happy to get in the box and get the goal.
