MANAGER: We go in confident mood

Keith Curle ahead of the weekend trip to Yeovil

23 February 2018

United boss Keith Curle takes his team to Huish Park on Saturday afternoon off the back of two good victories which have seen play-off aspirations rekindled – albeit with much work still to do.

Looking ahead to the game against Yeovil Town, he said: “It’s all about momentum. It’s not how you start the season, it’s how you finish it.

“We had to work for the points on Tuesday, but I thought once we got the foothold in the game we caused problems every time we went forward. The mindset has been about recovery these last few days because we know we need to have a go against Yeovil.

“The best thing is that we don’t fear anybody. We’ve had reduced numbers, with a few more people unavailable, but there’s a belief within the group that we can beat any team.”

“I know Darren Way was at Barnet to watch us and that shows the commitment you get from League Two managers,” he added. “There’ll be things he saw in the first half which would have given him encouragement, and things he saw in the latter stages that he’ll know he will have to guard against.

“I expect it to be another very tough game because they will not be happy about their league position at all. They’ll be demanding more from their players because they won’t want to get sucked in to anything unpleasant as we go towards the run-in.” 

“We go there feeling very confident,” he confirmed. “Having said that, we always keep our feet on the ground, both when we’re on a good run and when things aren’t going our way, because all you can affect is the next game you play.”
