Yeovil Town winger Danny Schofield is hoping that the club's two week break from first team football will give the Glovers a fresh start to their season. There was no match last weekend due to opponents Leicester City having three international call-ups and although that has meant that the players were left kicking their heels, Danny told BBC Somerset that may not be a bad thing:
"I think you've got to look at it in a positive light, in that we've had two weeks worth of good solid training. We've been going through a bit of a bad patch, so hopefully we can put that right on Saturday. With all of the hard work we've done in training, we just need to put that out onto the field against Northampton."
Danny also added that the break was also an opportunity for the players to continue their bonding process. With a huge number of departures and arrivals over the summer, and only eight of the players having played a full part in last season's football, it was also important for the new arrivals to continue to blend in with the squad:
"All the lads are blending quite close together now. We've got a lot of new faces that have come in, including myself, and that is going to take time to gel. I know pre-season is for doing all that kind of work and we did start off quite well, but since the Middlesbrough game we've been struggling really. Every team goes through a bad patch, and hopefully we'll have seen the back end of ours now, and we can go on and pick up a few wins."
