INTERVIEW | Mugabi looking to call on past experience

Town defender knows what it takes to stay up

Defender Bevis Mugabi is ready to call on past experience to help the Glovers achieve Sky Bet League Two safety this season.

The 23-year-old is in a third season at Huish Park and has faced the fear of relegation in both previous campaigns. 

Managing to secure the club's EFL status previously, the Uganda international is confident the same can be done this time around.

"There are some players who have been through this last season and the season before that," he told iFollow Glovers. "They know what to expect from these last four games of the season so I’d say we’re in good hands.

"We just need everyone to come together as one. Not just one person can change it, we don’t just need the experienced players, we need the young players, myself, the fans, coaching staff; we all have to come together to get us out of trouble.

"The performances don't really matter at all – if we have to fight in a scrappy game, as long as we get three points it will all count towards the end of the season."

Mugabi, who signed in August 2016, is approaching 100 appearances for the club and currently sits on 98. 

Potentially making his 100th appearance in green and white over the Easter weekend, the versatile defender admits his priorities lie elsewhere currently.

"It'll be nice if I get to 100, but I'm not really thinking about it if I'm honest with you because there's a lot more things rather than 100 appearances I need to think about right now.

"If it happens, it happens but first and foremost it's about getting us safe as quickly as possible.

"Within a few days it could be a totally different mindset and different feel around the club and with the fans, so it could all change over this weekend."
