The returns of loanees Josh Neufville and goalkeeper Ted Cann have helped provide a lift to the Yeovil Town dressing room, according to midfielder Matt Worthington.

Both players made their second debuts in last weekend’s 2-0 win at bottom club Dover Athletic and then followed up with outings in a 2-1 home win over play-off-chasing Bromley on Tuesday night.

Asked about the arrivals ahead of this weekend’s match with Southend United at Huish Park, Worthington said the wins were much needed having managed just one National League success in 2022 prior to the results.

He said: “We’ve had a tough couple of weeks, the manager has put a lot of pressure on us to get performances.

“We went through a period where it wasn’t nice, we want to win, but the last two games have given us a lift.
There’s lots of good competition for places in midfield.

“Seeing new faces around the ground in Josh and Ted always helps, so we are full of confidence to kick on and see where the next ten games take us.

Worthington has played 90 minutes for the last three matches and, if he completes another full match against Southend, he will have played more first-team minutes this season than in any other in his career.

He joined permanently in January 2019 and was part of the team which took Yeovil out of the Football League, a fact that is not lost on him.

Worthington said: “My journey here has not been great with us getting relegated the season I joined permanently, but I feel like I owe a lot to the club and I always try to do my best when I am out there.

However, like every member of the on-the-field staff at Huish Park (except you, Morgan!), he is out of contract next season, but was non-committal when asked about his future beyond May.

Worthy added: “I’m just focusing on the pitch and doing everything I can in the last ten games and, if I am here next year, great, if I am not it’s a new challenge.”
