INTERVIEW: It's an important period

21 March 2013

Manager Greg Abbott on the home form

United manager Greg Abbott spoke to us about the improved home form since the turn of the year.

“We’re obviously trying to keep it going for as long as we can,” he said. “Home form underpins a lot of what you try to do and if you are picking up points on your own patch you give yourself a real chance.

“We picked up a fair bit of criticism for the way things were going here before Christmas but we seem to have turned that round now.

“We’re now into what is a very important period for the club because we need to get the points required to make sure we are at least where we are now for next season. Once that is achieved we can move on from there.”

“We feel that the issues we’ve had this season are almost resolved and we are ready to start taking the club forward again,” he continued. “Part of that is to make sure we are putting smiles on the faces of our home fans and that’s why it’s important to keep the points coming. The win against Brentford was terrific for us and if we can reproduce that type of performance then we will cause Yeovil problems on Saturday.”

“We’ve been able to put in another good week despite the changeable weather conditions,” he said. “We’d like to thank Annan yet again for allowing us to use their surface. It’s fantastic that we have people who are willing to help us out as it means we can get full sessions done every day. 

“The lads have looked bright and I think they want to put the disappointment of the result from last weekend behind them as quickly as possible. We know we played better than the scoreline suggested in that one even though we are never going to be happy with the manner of the goals we conceded.

“If we can get back to the levels of energy and determination we have seen at home over the last few months then we should be looking at a positive outcome.”
