INTERVIEW | Duffus ready for more after success against Cambridge

Striker ready to push on

Town clinched a vital three points last time out against Cambridge United thanks to a first goal in green and white for January recruit, Courtney Duffus.

Duffus, formerly of Everton, joined the Glovers on deadline day after a difficult spell with the Latics.

Goals have been largely hard to come by at Huish Park this season, and Yeovil’s new frontman is looking to get back into goalscoring form in a new environment.

“Things weren’t going great for me at Oldham and I got a phone call from Paul Terry, who was at Oldham beforehand, so it sort of just happened like that really.” Duffus told iFollow Glovers.

“I got a good feeling when I came down here and spoke to the manager, and obviously I’ve seen the way he does things and I think I’ve made the right choice by coming here.” 

“The biggest target this season is to make sure we stay in the Football League."

Speaking on aims for the remainder of the season, the former Ireland Under-21 international said: “The biggest target this season is to make sure we stay in the Football League. Personally, it’s just about getting myself out there on the pitch and getting as many minutes as I can and obviously scoring as many goals as I can.

“Last week we put in a performance for the fans to get behind as well, they’ve not been getting results the last few weeks so it was good to give them something to cheer about.”

This weekend’s fixture is a one of top importance for both clubs, something Duffus is aware of and hoping to take advantage of.

“Every game coming up now for us is a big game, but this in particular is like a six-pointer. We’ve trained well this week, everyone’s looking sharp and hopefully the win last Saturday will give us some momentum to go on a run of winning football matches.”
