Wilson on Yeovil

27 March 2014

Reds Manager Danny Wiilson stressed to the press this Saturday's match at Yeovil is big, but not the end of either team's season.

Both sides are in the relegation zone, locked on 32 points, and go head to head this weekend in Somerset.

"It is a big game but if we lose it and win the next seven, it's not a big game," said Danny.

"Whoever comes out victorious will have a fantastic boost in confidence and the other will find it a lot harder.

"We're  very similar to them, in that they've perhaps been a bit hard done by with a few late goals.

"They can cause problems and have quality to win a game but so do we. There's always pressure on the home team, so we'll go there and give it our all."

The Reds head into Saturday's game off the back of a solid, winning performance at Reading on Tuesday night.

"There's no better time than now to go on a run," he added.

"It's important we go there and maintain the mindset we had on Tuesday. 

"We may have changed one or two opinions at this moment in time. But if we can get back to back wins, that'd make our confidence sky high.

"There's always going to be doubts if you're not winning games. But we've always maintained our belief is there. But you need to put it into practice. It gives us confidence going into a really tough game at the weekend.

"We'll take that every week if we can play like that we'll have no worries."

Without Jim O'Brien, Martin Cranie and Peter Ramage, Wilson is hopeful full-backs Jack Hunt and Ryan McLaughlin can make it back for the weekend.

"We're looking very similar to Tuesday," he continued. "There's no additions at this moment in time. We are hoping we will have one or two back.

"We may have Ryan McLaughlin back and Jack Hunt back.

"We were quite confident in the boys who came in and we saw a terrific performance on Tuesday. That's given us great hope.

"Confidence is always low when you lose games. It's always a disappointment.

"We've never looked beyond the next game. We can't be looking further down the line. When everybody looks at you and say you've no chance, that's when you can go on a run."
