Fresh from netting two goals, Francois Zoko heaped praise on his team-mates following Town's 6-2 win at Coventry City.

The Ivorian notched his 13th and 14th of the season as fellow strikers Alex Fisher and Sam Surridge also bagged a brace to record Yeovil's biggest away win since entering the EFL.

Moving three games unbeaten in the process, the Glovers now sit 11 points clear of the bottom two with up to three games in hand on some teams in Sky Bet League Two.

After securing back-to-back away wins, captain Zoko paid homage to the side's performance. 

"We knew Coventry were a good team so we prepared very well, had some time off and time to work as a team and we saw it come together on the pitch," he told iFollow Glovers

"We moved as a block and were solid. We conceded two goals but we were solid, threw our bodies on the line and we always have strength up front.

"That gives us confidence when it gets hard because we know if we keep working hard we will get the chances to score which is what happened."

The 34-year-old scored Yeovil's second and fourth of the afternoon in the West Midlands to secure his most prolific campaign since signing in November 2015. 

With eight games remaining, Zoko remains focused on team success over individual milestones. 

"The most important thing is the team performance, to keep performing well away from home and this is more important, but I'm happy.

"I'm just playing game after game and trying for the team. I’m more interested in our young players focusing on the game and progressing, being happy to come into training everyday but after I’ll do what I can do on the pitch."
