Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton doesn't want to drop any hints as to whether loan midfield signing Shaun MacDonald will be starting against Brentford this afternoon, but insists that the Swansea City player has got a big role to play at the club over the next three months.
Skiverton told BBC Somerset that he could see comparisons with former Glover Chris Cohen in the way that MacDonald plays midfield roles and hoped that bringing in him and striker Craig Davies would provide a spark in his side to break their current run of games without a win:
"I don't want to let my secrets out of the bag just yet. But I've seen him playing and I know the qualities that he's got. He's someone that has got loads of energy and is a little bit of a Chris Cohen type who can get about. He's got great ability on the ball and he scored two goals for us when he was here on his loan spell last time. So we've done well to get him and we're really pleased. But we need to get a result this weekend and the boys are really focussed. Sometimes a fresh face in the pack helps out."
MacDonald himself said that he decided to come back to Yeovil because of the big welcome that he got from the club during his first loan stay under former manager Russell Slade. The Welsh international also cited club secretary Jean Cotton and former Swansea midfielder Darren Way as having a big influence upon his decision:
"When I came here the last time, everybody welcomed me and made me feel a big part of Yeovil. Everybody looked after me really well and that includes the people outside the football as well such as the staff and the secretary (Jean Cotton). That was a massive thing in me coming back, but obviously there was Darren Way as well. It's good to see him back and walking and really nice to see him and the way he is."
