Yeovil Town's on loan midfielder Gavin Williams spoke to BBC Bristol reporter Rob Scanlon after his side had beaten Stockport County on April 10th 2010.
RS: Gavin, well played today, with two goals. You've had a frustrating time with suspension, but now you're back.
GW: Yes, I know it's good to be back really. I've come here to get games and now I'm back playing, hopefully I can behave myself whilst I'm on the pitch.
RS: We spoke in midweek about the surface. What was it like to play on?
GW: It was how it looks. It was absolutely terrible. It was probably one of the worst pitches I have ever played on. But it was the same for both teams and the most important thing was that we got the right result today.
RS: You must have played football on the beaches during the summer holidays when you were a kid?
GW: Yes, but that's not in bare feet! But that's exactly right, it's just sand. But like I said it's the same for both teams, and hopefully we can build on this result.
RS: Two goals for yourself, and with the first one I thought Steven Caulker might have got near it, but you denied him.
GW: No, to be fair he left it for me. I called and he got out of my way. So it was pleasing to get on the score-sheet, but most important for the football club was the three points.
RS: As someone who has come back to the club and are new to the guys, Steven Caulker must be someone who really impresses you.
GW: Yes of course. He's a man, despite his age. He's a man and he's a big influence at the back and hopefully he will go on to play football at the top level.
RS: With your second goal, after a quiet sort of period in the second half, there was a real piece of quality.
GW: Yes, the game was dead, but it turned out that the third goal was important for us.
RS: What was the atmosphere like, because we said on the commentary that it was all really quiet.
GW: Yes it was. Obviously we had to build up the atmosphere ourselves in the dressing room. Luckily enough it was 2-0 at half time and the job was nearly done then. Like you've said, with the atmosphere there was nothing really going on.
RS: At 2-0, do you think their heads dropped then?
GW: Not really, they kept going, but I thought we were comfortable then, but they didn't really threaten us much until the last five minutes.
RS: Normally the guys come in and check the results, but I don't think you have yet have you?
GW: No, I haven't, but fingers crossed they've gone for us and hopefully now we've won, that should be enough for us.
RS: And was the full 90 minutes all right with you? Obviously Tuesday is a quick turnaround.
GW: Yes it is, but that's not a problem because my main thing was to come here and get as many games as I can. I'm glad we're playing on Tuesday, and like I've said hopefully we can build on that result.
RS: You've signed until the end of the season, so hopefully you can play a focal role in keeping them up.
GW: Yes, hopefully we can get the right results. If the results have gone for us today, then I think one more win and that should be enough.
