Yeovil Town wide-man Danny Schofield believes that the 'free role' that manager Russell Slade has given him has reaped rewards so far this season. Schofield is currently the club's top league scorer with four goals, having scored twice in Tuesday night's match against Crewe Alexandra.
Speaking to BBC Somerset, Danny explained that he didn't feel he fitted into the role of a touchline-hugging orthodox winger and was at his best when he was given room to roam:
"I've never really been an out-and-out winger. I've always had the freedom in previous seasons at Huddersfield to come inside, then get wide, and then get back when I'm needed to defend. But I've always had that bit of freedom when we are attacking. I enjoy doing that and I think the gaffer is allowing me to do that as long as I do my defensive duties."
Danny also told the Western Daily Press that Yeovil Town's recent run of poor form had been starting to affect him personally. He was therefore hopeful that Tuesday's win would act as a release of pressure when the team go into Saturday's match with Leyton Orient:
"You do start feeling the pressure. It does get to you. You take it home with you and it starts affecting you when you are at home. You have just got to keep focussed and confident as possible. We had a really good pre-season and played some good teams here and we started off well when we drew with Walsall and Leeds. Hopefully we have got the win and we can kick on now."
