Mark on Yeovil

22 January 2016

Reds’ boss believes Way has improved the Glovers

Manager Mark Yates believes the performances of Saturday's hosts Yeovil have improved since Darren Way’s introduction as manager.

Way took the helm at the end of December, after Paul Sturrock left the club with Yeovil rooted to the bottom of League Two.


Mark said: “Darren is a fiery character, demands a lot from his team and we need to make sure we tough it out and play our game.


“Carlisle are one of the best teams in the league and his side made them look ordinary for an hour in the FA Cup replay on Tuesday, so we have to be wary of that.”


He went on to add that Yeovil’s performances have warranted better results this season, despite them being the second lowest scorers in the league.


“They’ve not lost many of late, they’ve been a bit unlucky as well and I’m fully aware of how tough Saturday’s match will be," he added.


The Reds’ away form has stumbled, after our 2-1 victory over Hartlepool in October, but Mark thinks his side has a great opportunity to put that right on Saturday.


“This weekend provides a huge chance to turn our away form around. We have had some tough away games the last few weeks, although all the games are tough in this league.


“Teams have been able to strut their stuff against us this season but we try to make a game of it no matter who we’re playing and Saturday will be no different."
