SCOTT Lindsey has been taking the positives from the Under-18s' defeat to Portsmouth last weekend ahead of their next league meeting with Yeovil this coming Saturday.

The Under-18s manager says that, despite the defeat, Town will still go out and play the same way against the Glovers.

"We lost the game (against Portsmouth) 2-1 but the scoreline wasnt a true reflection of the game," he explained. "We had a lot of possession and gave two sloppy goals away but, on reflection, I was really pleased with the way we performed.

"We don't really look too much into the results unless they're happening every week or if we're conceding a lot of goals but, at the moment, we're looking at the positives from last week. With that in mind, nothing really changes - we'll still go out and play the same way and hopefully we will win the game. Hopefully, it will be about the invidivual performances and doing the right things as a team."

In the build-up to Saturday's fixture, Lindsey revealed that a fitness testing session had formed part of their preparations.

"We trained on Monday but that was more of an active recovery session," he explained. "On Tuesday, the boys went to the University of Gloucestershire to be fitness tested which is good. We've come out of pre-season so we can measure where they are. Then we can take them back around Christmas time and marry up the two sets of results. We also had a development game on Wednesday which a couple of the youngsters played in - we beat Kidderminster 2-1."

Finally, it's been an important day for his First Year Scholars.

"This morning we've not trained because the first years have been finding out their exam results so we've had to put training back to this afternoon," he said. "They're quite a bright bunch - I'm not sure of their results yet but I'm sure they'll be positive!"
