Yeovil Town right-back Craig Alcock spoke to local journalist Chris Spittles, in an interview for BBC Somerset, after his side had lost 1-0 at Stevenage on Saturday 2nd February 2019.
CS: What did you make of today's game?
CA: There wasn't really a lot in the game, to be fair. We're obviously disappointed because games like that are won and lost on fine margins and unfortunately we were on the wrong side of it today.
CS: What did you see of the goal that wasn't - the Tom James free kick?
CA: Yes I think apparently Alex Fisher jumped in front of the keeper, but unfortunately you seem to get those sorts of decisions away from home maybe more than you do at home. But we have to dust ourselves off, and with the games coming thick and fast we have a massive game on Tuesday.
CS: With their goal it was an excellent finish from Alex Revell.
CA: Yes, although I think we shouldn't have given someone of that sort of quality that much time in the box. Hopefully we live and learn from it, and like I've said we go again on Tuesday.
CS: For you, what's it like being back in Yeovil where you started your career?
CA: Yes it's nice. The fans have been great with me before. Hopefully the main objective for the team is to get us climbing back up that table.
CS: Does it seem like you've been away for as long as you have?
CA: I know, it seems strange. It doesn't feel like I've been away for as long as I have. It's nice as the club obviously means a lot to me, and it's nice to see a lot of familiar faces and stuff like that as well. But as I've said the most important thing is that we get the team back up the league.
CS: I guess a lot has changed with the team, but are there lots of faces around the ground, and the off-field staff that you recognise?
CA: Yes, it's brilliant. It's a proper family club, and everyone is still the same, which is really nice to come back into. Like I've said, on the pitch is where we need to make the results count, and really give the fans something to get behind.
CS: You've personally come back as a very different player. You've gone away and got a great deal of experience at a higher level.
CA: Yes, at the end of the day I got the grounding to go on and do that, and I'd like to think I did alright. But it's nice to come back and hopefully be where we've got a lot of talent in this squad and we just need to try to bring it out of each other and push forward. The gaffer is trying to instill that belief in everyone, and we've just got to bring it out of us in the games, and try to get three points from now on.
CS: Did it all move quite quickly in the last couple of days, because your signing was only announced last night and then here you are starting today.
CA: Yes, I know. It was a bit of a whirlwind, in getting right into it. But at the end of the day you're a professional footballer and all you want to do is to play games. Hopefully I can get up to speed sooner, rather than later, and start putting in the form that hopefully everyone can remember.
CS: You'll know all about what's been going on in League Two this season, having played for Cheltenham and how tight it is at the bottom there.
CA: Yes, unfortunately it's not like you get given points nowadays in this league. Everyone is capable of putting a run together. We've got to make sure we dust ourselves off from today, and start again on Tuesday, and try to get some momentum.
