Striker Adi Yussuf has said he is confident that goals will come for Yeovil Town if they continue to do the things they are doing.

The 29-year-old played 72 minutes of today’s goalless draw at Solihull Moors where he had two great chances to find the net at the end of the first half.

Speaking to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins after the match, Yussuf said: “At the minute I am still getting the minutes in and getting fitter and I am confident in myself that the goals will start coming.

“But the most important thing is the team are playing well and we are getting points on the board.

“I have got no doubts about the scoring, we are playing well and when the team is playing like that it is only a matter of time before the forwards start scoring.

The former Solihull player has started the last two games and says he is feeling his fitness returning having not had a proper pre-season before joining in the summer.

Following his release by Blackpool at the end of last season, he had a spell at League Two side Hartlepool United before signing for Yeovil on the eve of the new season.

He said he was using his position as one of the most experienced heads in to support the Glovers’ young team.

He said: “I am a big believer in confidence, so I praise them all the time and obviously tell them when they need to be told.

“I am loving every minute of it and I think we can do great things this year as long as we stick together, work hard and most importantly believe in ourselves.
