Yeovil Town centre-back Richard Hinds believes that his new side should be at the other end of the table based on what he has witnessed so far. The 30 year old has seen the Glovers pick up four wins and two defeats, with one of those losses coming on his debut against his former club Sheffield Wednesday.
Hinds has since then seen the club gain four wins in five that has seen them climb out of the League One relegation zone and up to a 17th place position, five points clear of the drop positions. He has told BBC Somerset that there's no reason why the club shouldn't be higher than that:
"We believe we should be in the top half. We've had good results against MK Dons and a good performance against Sheffield Wednesday. We believe that we should be up there in the play-offs, and over the last couple of months, our form shows that we should be. We've just got to carry it on, and hopefully get away from the relegation zone, which we're doing, and we're making progress."
Yeovil won their third away match in the League on Tuesday night, when they beat promotion-chasing MK Dons on their own patch. Having only previously won at Hartlepool United in November, and at Wycombe Wanderers last month, form on their travels has been a problem. However, the centre-back feels that situation is now improving:
"I think that's been a problem this season with the away performances. But I think we've done well since I've been here. We had a good first half against Sheffield Wednesday and we couldn't quite hold on, but they threw everything at us. Carlisle was a little bit disappointing, but I felt we should have got something out of that. Then we've got MK Dons and Wycombe where we've got wins. So we've got to take the positives out of that, and we can go on to Oldham, who are beatable especially if we play like we did (at MK Dons) and hopefully get a result."
