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.'
