Yeovil Town front man Jordan Young has been speaking to the press ahead of the Glovers game against Havant and Waterlooville and has admitted that the 4-3 loss in the reverse fixture is something of a motivation for the team.

“They’re obviously a difficult team, they beat us earlier in the season, so we’ve got that in the back of our minds, we’ve just got to stick to what we do and I think that’s what the gaffer said today and if we just keep doing what we’re doing we’ll get the three points on Saturday.

I feel like every team we play against want to bring their best and especially them if they’re struggling a little bit, they’re going to fight for everything, they’ve got attributes that could hurt us, so we’ve got to be careful.”

Young is having a productive season in front of goal, already into double figures, he says that whilst he didn’t set a target for himself at the start… the idea of getting to 20 does sound nice.

“Its been a good season for everybody and I’m glad I’m doing well for myself, it’s shows with where we are in the table, I’m pleased overall.

I haven’t (set any targets) this season, because at the start, I wasn’t playing as much as I wanted, so it wasn’t something that I was thinking about, but when you get playing regularly, it is something you think about, how many I can get, it’s more just enjoying myself and playing freely, that’s when I’m at my best”

“The main thing is that we win the league, but I want to hit 20 if I can.”

Coming back to Huish Park this weekend gives Yeovil the chance to play back-to-back games in front of their fans for the first time in a while, something which Young thinks can really spur the side on in the final push for promotion;

“It’s massive, even last year when I signed in January, it wasn’t the best season last year, but the fans were never the problem, I thought they were good in the end, especially when you get relegated, you want to kick on and that’s what we did this year, the fans have been there from the start, from the first game of the season, the attendance has been crazy, it is obviously massive, it helps, it helps all of us gel together.

We’ve got a really good bunch of boys here and we’re doing really well.”

Finally, Jordan Young spoke to Three Valley’s Radio’s Tom Bailey about the possibility of missing two game through suspension, sitting on nine yellow cards, if he were to get one more before the Welling game in mid March, he’d have to sit out two games.

“It was on my mind, when I got the ninth one, the gaffer spoke to me and said be careful of your tackles and stuff, so I haven’t been going to ground recently, I don’t even know how I’m on nine to be honest with you, it’s crazy. 
It’s difficult when you play for that to be on your mind, but it is something that I’ve tried to stay away from.”

Be nice to the ref on Saturday please, Jordan!
