WAY IDENTIFIES TEAM'S 'UNBELIEVABLE DESIRE' TO SUCCEED

13 November 2016

After moving seven games unbeaten in all competitions, Glovers manager Darren Way believes the team has an ‘unbelievable desire’ to continue rising up the Sky Bet League Two table.

After taking the lead at Stevenage, substitute Ben Whitfield rescued a point for Town in second half stoppage time to level the scores at 2-2. 

The result in Hertfordshire moved the green and whites up a place to 10th in League Two, extending their unbeaten run in the league to five matches having not lost since the start of October. 

After a frantic afternoon at the Lamex Stadium, Way told YTFC.net there’s still plenty of work to be done.

“We’re really pleased but we also know that it’s not over yet. We can do better but we’re happy with what we’re doing and happy with the progression we’re making. 

“There’s an unbelievable desire for me as manager and as a team to do better, but we enjoyed the comeback on Saturday.” 

The Glovers now sit just a single point off the play-offs and fourth in the League Two form table for the last six games, leaving Way pleased with the battling characteristics demonstrated by his side at Stevenage. 

“We’re disappointed with the manner in which we let the goals in, but we’ve got to be careful with the way we dissect the game because we’ve got a result that’s pushed us up a place. 

“We had large spells in control and a lot of good chances. What we saw though was a group of individuals and a team that will never, ever, ever give up.”

The Glovers were cheered on by 285 supporters at the Lamex Stadium, and Way was pleased to share the last minute ecstasy with the travelling faithful. 

“It was nice to shake hands with the supporters and get close them because the dedication they put in to follow this Football Club around is immense, and each of us as individuals really appreciate that support.

“I spoke to them before the game and they can carry us to the next level – we’re trying to create an unbelievable positivity around the Football Club and they’re a massive part of that, so hopefully we put some smiles on their faces with an exciting end to the game and they go home happy.”
