Yeovil Town Caretaker Manager Neale Marmon spoke to local journalist Chris Spittles, in an interview for BBC Somerset, after his side had drawn 1-1 against Swindon Town on Saturday 6th April 2019.

CS: Neale, three changes today. First of all up front, you've gone for Tristan Abrahams and Courtney Duffus. Just explain the selection if you can?

NM: Well we've had a very hard training week this week and Courtney was on top form. So I decided to take him, instead of Alex Fisher. I just feel that the physicality of Tristan is needed a bit more at the start of the game, and we'll maybe bring Gabby on when the opponents are a bit more tired.

CS: In defence there's no Josh Grant. What's happened there?

NM: He had an Achilles problem last week and had to go back to Chelsea. The injury hadn't developed as well as we thought it would be, but at this stage he's coming back in next week again. But it was an automatic choice to push Bevis Mugabi across to the right-back position and bring in Omar Sowunmi.

CS: No concerns about Omar? He's had his fitness issues with that ankle, hasn't he?

NM: Yes, when he played those four games in twelve days, I don't think that was conducive after that big injury that he had. Now I've seen him in training for three weeks, he's back on form again and he's ready to go.

CS: What about Swindon? They're a tough test here today.

NM: Absolutely. They won their last two games. Beforehand they drew two and lost two. So we've just got to take our chance, have a go at them, see what they're all about and see what we can get out of the result today.

CS: How has the week gone? I know you're big on confidence. Are the guys looking confident ahead of today?

NM: Yes, we've trained very hard. We trained four sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday, and then had a big rest from Thursday until Friday afternoon. They've freshened up now. We did an hour on Friday afternoon, and I think they're ready to go.

CS: Just tell us about one of the lads on the bench. Alex John comes in today. A lot of the fans won't know anything about him.

NM: Yes, he's been training with us for three weeks and he's a massive talent. Even the players are really excited about the young guy. I always go on performance, and not on age or experience, so why not put the guy on the bench and see what he's all about?

CS: I gather he's a central midfielder - is that right?

NM: Yes, he can play right-back and centre-half. But if you asked me, he's a No. 6 (midfielder).
