Midfielder Dean Parrett has called on the side to build on the weekend’s FA Cup first round victory over Gillingham when we face Yeovil this weekend.

With a three nil victory over Gillingham behind us, Parrett told the Official Site that we needed to take all the confidence we could from the game and ensure we got a league victory this weekend against our fellow League Two strugglers.

‘We knew that we had to get back on the training ground and make sure that we were extra focused this week and I think the boys put in a great performance. When we spoke about the game before we said we had to stick together out there and do everything together. It felt like whenever we pressed, someone was behind us. If we were dropping off, we would all drop off together and let them come and then press together. That is what we were working on in training and it worked very well.’

With Parrett being largely back to his best in the game, he topped off the showing with an assist for Armand Gnanduillet’s third goal.

‘Originally when I knocked it past, Gnando was going to get it and I remember saying ‘get out the way` because I wanted to go and score. Then the keeper came out and it was just a split decision. I thought, if we take the third one here with an easy goal, there is no coming back. If I miss then they could go down the other end and the last five minutes are a bit nervy if they nick a goal so I would rather go 3-0 up and set someone up than miss one.’

With the second round draw for the FA Cup at 7pm tonight, he went on to add that the focus really couldn’t only be Yeovil.

‘It is a huge game but we will take a lot of confidence from the game on Saturday. We have shown we can do it against some of the best teams on a few occasions this season but now it is time for us to do it against a team lower down in the league. Obviously it is a massive game and we need to make sure we keep them below us. This time last year we started to kick-on and I think we can do it again. Obviously we have had a lot of change in the summer, both players and management so it has taken a bit of time and we haven`t been at our best this year. It would be nice to get back to back wins and it could be the springboard we are after.’
