Club skipper Danny Coles has said that everyone in the camp remains upbeat ahead of our game against Southend United, because all they know results could've and importantly should've been different in recent games given how we have played - and he's confident that the team have learned the lessons from those games that saw the result not in fact go our way.
Speaking to the Official Site Coles said that there was confidence and belief amongst the players that results would soon turn our way as long as we kept improving and giving our all on the pitch and maintained the standards of doing the right things on the pitch.
'I think we look comfortable as a team, it's just a case of getting that first goal. Once we start getting that first goal, teams will have to start opening up and we will be able to start picking off teams as a result, we've just got to start putting the ball in the back of the net.'
Manager Paul Tisdale has already confirmed that we could potentially welcome back Alan Gow and Danny Butterfield for this game, and obviously for Coles, Butterfield's experience in the back line would be a huge plus for his own unit when it comes to not conceding the opening goal and then trying to fight back, as keeping more clean sheets allows us to nick more games by a single margin.
However he saves his special praise in the interview for youngsters of the moment (he's not quite a man yet!) Matt Grimes, of whom he says that there are no two ways about it, he's a class player who is only going to improve with every minute he spends on the pitch.
'If he keeps his feet on the ground and keeps listening to the staff and the boys, he's got a fantastic future ahead of him.'
The skipper goes on to say that it's no surprise really that when a youngster like Grimes or even Moore-Taylor are called upon, they can step up and do a job because the gaffer doesn't just concern himself with the first team, he tries to keep all levels at the club involved, and makes sure he knows about the progress of youngsters so when he picks one to have a chance he's confident that whilst they might not take immediate headlines, he's confident enough that they will be able to cope, deal with the pressure and put in a performance they will be proud of.
The secret to plugging youngsters in, is getting them when it won't leave them looking overly out of place.
