Yeovil Town striker Jordan Young believes his first goal for the club is coming having found himself going close in recent matches.

The 23-year-old, who joined from National League South side Chippenham Town in January, made his first consecutive starts for the Glovers in the midweek win over Eastleigh where he came close to finding the net with some golden opportunities.

Speaking to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins ahead of the weekend’s trip to Chesterfield, he said: “The first goal is definitely coming. I am trying to not put too much pressure on myself, but I am desperate to get off the mark. It will come and as long as we get the three points, that is all that matters.

He described the mood among the players as “buzzing” after the 1-0 victory over an Eastleigh side which occupied the National League play-off places.

Their opponents at the weekend sit fourth in the division and having picked up two wins in their last two matches including a 2-1 victory at Southend United in midweek.

Young said: “You would not believe how good it feels to get a win, it lifts everyone coming in on a Thursday everyone is buzzing and hopefully we can carry this on. It is the best feeling in football winning a football match, if we can go and get another win, it will breed confidence for everyone.

Everyone is looking forward to the weekend, you just bounce in to games when you are winning. It is tough when you go through a spell when you don’t win but it makes that win even better.

It showed no matter who we play, we can play against anyone. It showed against Notts County, obviously the result did not show that, but the performance was there. I think we can beat anyone in this division.

Off the back of a win, we are all high confidence and hopefully we can keep bouncing on and picking up three points as a minimum.
