Town are focusing on themselves to ensure they produce a winning performance on Saturday, according to defender Josh Grant.

Darren Way's side will lineup against Macclesfield Town at Huish Park looking to halt a run of back-to-back defeats. 

The green and whites return home after losses on the road at Lincoln City and Port Vale but will aim to carry on their recent form in Somerset.

Winning their last two, Grant revealed the hosts are determined to get back to winning ways.

"The focus is on us and no one else," he told iFollow Glovers. "Yes we've had two bad results that we’re not happy with, but that’s football and we move on quickly.

"The table can change so quickly with one or two results so the focus is on ourselves and hopefully we can climb that table.

"There's no extra pressure on us being the home team. We just have to go out and implement what we have to do and try and play well. If we don’t play well, as long as we get a result we’ll be happy."

The on-loan defender has made nine appearances since arriving in January and has started the last two matches following an ankle injury. 

Now back in the side, the 20-year-old is wanting the games to keep coming thick and fast as he looks to help Town beat the drop.

"There's nothing better than having game after game because sometimes when you have a break you can feel a bit down but we played Friday, played Tuesday and now we go again on Saturday and that’s the best thing.

"It’s a big game not just for us but for them as well. Not down the bottom, but you want to be involved in big games where it actually matters, that’s what you want to be involved in so all the players are looking forward to the challenge and hopefully we come out on top.

"As a young player, when you're playing in the academy you want to get that first-team football where you’re playing against men, playing in games that matter and have three points on the line every game.

"It’s a great challenge coming here to help keep Yeovil up but the sole focus is on the team."
