KHAN HOPING FOR MORE OF THE SAME

26 September 2016

Glovers winger Otis Khan is hoping for more of the same from the team and himself after Saturday’s 4-2 win against Cheltenham Town at Huish Park.

The 21-year-old scored the opening goal after six minutes, provided the cross for Darren Ward to score and played a pivotal role in Matty Dolan’s headed goal on the stroke of half time.

After being named Man of the Match, Khan was pleased with his performance.

"To get on the score-sheet and get two assists, I certainly think it was my best performance of the season and hopefully I can get many more like it.

"The Gaffer has been talking to me all through the week about being calm on the ball. Some of the games at League Two level are 100 miles an hour and he just wanted me to calm down.

"I think today I was calm on the ball. I could have had two or three more goals but I think that will come."

The result - which Khan made a large contribution to - sees Town record back-to-back victories in Sky Bet League Two, catapulting Darren Way’s side towards mid-table. 

Yeovil travel to Cambridge United on Tuesday night looking to make it three wins in a row, something Khan is confident can happen.

“Before the Leyton Orient match it was five loses in a row, so hopefully it can be five wins on the trot now. We’ve got confidence going into games and know we can hurt anyone in the league. 

“Our energy levels compared to other teams are way up there, so if we continue to take chances we’ll win games.

“We’ll recover for the game and keep going,” the former Manchester United youth player said. “We know what we can do, all the spirits are high and we’re really confident going into Tuesday’s game.”
