Yeovil Town winger Lewis Young spoke to local journalist Chris Spittles in an interview for BBC Somerset on Saturday 9th March 2013, after his side had drawn 0-0 against Hartlepool United.
LY: It's obviously frustrating sitting on the bench, but when the lads are doing so well you can't expect anything else. You've just got to keep your head down on the training pitch, keep working hard and make it difficult for the boys who are obviously playing. You've got to keep in the manager's thoughts.
CS: You've been back a few weeks now since your injury. So are you feeling fit and raring to go?
LY: Yes, it felt like ages that I was out for. I think I've been back longer than I was out for now though. But yes, it was a really hard slog getting back fit. But I obviously had the manager, the coaching staff, the physio and all the boys all behind me and coming to speak to me every morning and things like that. They saw how hard I was working, and hopefully now it's starting to pay dividends, and I'm getting a little five or ten minutes here. Hopefully I'll get rewarded with a little bit longer with the run-in.
CS: A disappointing goalless draw on one of the longest trips of the season, but now two back-to-back home games, starting with Crawley on Tuesday night.
LY: Yes definitely. If you look at our stats on the board, we don't draw a lot. Picking up a point is better than none, but we feel that when we're coming away that we can beat anyone. We feel that we should beat them. As you can see, we had so many chances, but it just wouldn't drop for us. But we've got another game on Tuesday, we'll go in tomorrow, we'll recover and then go back to the training pitch on Monday.
CS: You're looking forward to being back at Huish Park, because you've got two consecutive home Tuesday night games.
LY: Yes definitely. We've made it sort of like a fortress back there, and we've picked up so many points there. A lot of people have been surprised by our run but with us inside (the dressing room) we've always seen it coming, we're doing really well, and hopefully long may it continue until the end of the season.
CS: There's ten games to go now. But it's so close, we're really towards the run-in end of the season and you're in a great position.
LY: Definitely, especially as we've got one of the youngest squads, so hopefully we've got the legs until the end of the season. But it's really interesting. It's really exciting in this part of the season, and I don't know anyone in the squad who is not chomping at the bit to get those ten games under us and see where we can really finish. There's no reason why we can't really finish up there.
