After Saturday’s 2-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday striker Ishmael Miller believes the confidence boasted by the squad could make the difference in Yeovil’s bid to avoid relegation.

Miller’s brace ensured Town’s unbeaten run was extended to five matches at the weekend and the Nottingham Forest loanee is full of praise for the current confidence level amongst the players.

“I’m very delighted that we got the three points,” said Miller.  “We’re on a very good run at the moment and we’re are going in to matches with a lot of confidence, and it’s a vital part of the season where every point in every game matters so I’m delighted to be going in to matches with confidence and another it’s another great three points for us.”

The 27-year-old has scored seven goals in 13 appearances since arriving at Huish Park making him the Glovers’ current top scorer.

Whilst Miller feels he could have added a few more goals to his tally, the former Manchester City striker is more concerned with Yeovil escaping the clutches of relegation in the SkyBet Championship.

“I’m pleased with my goals but I could have got a few more, but you’ve always got to strive for more. I feel like I could have added two or three  – obviously the missed penalty against Leeds – I’m obviously happy but I’d be more happy if the team could get out of the relegation dogfight we’re in at the minute.

“The momentum going into games and the confidence is very high at the minute and we’re going into training and the team spirit and camaraderie is very high.

 “That’s what we need going into a relegation fight as we need that from every player in the squad. Credit to the coaching staff who have created a great team spirit within the club.”

Despite coming off with 20 minutes remaining against the Owls, Miller is confident he’ll be available for tomorrow’s match against Ipswich.

“I’ll do whatever I need to do to get out there – I’ll play with one leg if I have to but obviously the ice on my hamstring was just precautionary.”
