KM: Competitive edge

18 March 2013

TOWN manager Kevin MacDonald is looking forward to a competitive clash on Tuesday night as the Robins go in search of a promotion boost.

Yeovil are level on points with MacDonald’s men and the Scot believes that whilst three points would be a big boost in the promotion race, the outcome of the contest will not be season defining.

He said: "The players and I recognise the importance of the game and hopefully we can go there and get the right result.

“A win for either side would be important, but not season defining. There are another eight games to go after Yeovil but we will go down there with a positive attitude.

“Yeovil are a well-organised side and have the top scorer in the league in Paddy Madden. They have done a great job this season but I’d like to think we have enough on the other side to combat what they have. It will be an interesting match-up and it’s a game we are very much looking forward to.”

MacDonald admits new recruits are unlikely to come into the squad in time for the visit to Huish Park, although two members of the Under-18’s squad have linked up with the first team set-up.

He said: “It (the embargo) won’t be lifted today so I don’t think there will be any players joining the squad in time for Yeovil. We have looked at various players, but until the embargo is over there is not a lot we can do.

“Connor Waldon and Alex Ferguson will come into the squad for the Yeovil game because Alan Navarro is unavailable with a hamstring injury and Troy Archibald-Henville is now back in light training.”
