Yeovil Town centre-back Paul Huntington admits that having the goals spread across the team will be beneficial to the squad. Huntington, who has been captaining the Glovers side in the absence of right-back Craig Alcock, has seen his defensive partner Adam Virgo chip in with three goals so far this season.
That makes the former Brighton and Hove Albion player Yeovil's joint top scorer with Dean Bowditch, but Huntington joked to BBC Somerset this week that he was worried that Virgo would want to move from his favoured centre-back position and go up front again:
"Don't tell him that though, as he thinks he's a striker! He was at Brighton and he used to play up front quite a lot and that's how he got his move to Celtic a few years ago. But he's popped up with a few important goals, and obviously if we can spread that across the team, then that will benefit the whole squad."
So far, after 12 games having been played this season, seven Yeovil Town players have found the net, with the goals coming in at precisely one per game. Aside from Virgo and Bowditch, left-winger Andy Welsh is the other player to find the net more than once. Huntington is one of four players with a single goal to his name.
