Long Praises Teammates

Long Praises Teammates

Shane Long said he was delighted to be the only startee from the Spurs game, and he was pleased with how the team gelled and battled against a spirited Yeovil.

Speaking to wba.co.uk after the game Long explained that he really wanted to play a part in the game because he felt his performance against Spurs was substandard, so grabbing a double last night to get his goal tally off the mark was the perfect boost for him.

'I wanted to play. The more games I play, the better I feel on the pitch and the more chances I have to score goals. That will build my confidence and I can go into Saturday on a high.'

As for the game and Steve Clarke's attempts to introduce a more youthful flair to the starting XI, Long added.

'We knew it was a tough place to go and we knew we would have to dig deep. We showed great character from 1-0 down and 2-2 at a fairly hostile place to show our class and come away with the win. A good cup run gets confidence going and gives players a game to show what they can do, so it will be good for everybody if we can have a run in the cup.'
