Yeovil Town striker Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro spoke to local journalist Chris Spittles, in an interview for BBC Somerset, after his side had drawn 0-0 against Notts County on Saturday 25th February 2017.

CS: That was a hard earned point today.

JLAA: Yes, it was a very important point. We kept a clean sheet. I think it was a good team performance. Maybe not the best, but in that display we had the desire not to concede. Unfortunately we didn't score, but it was quite a tight game. There wasn't a lot of opportunities for both sides, but it is a good point today.

CS: Defensively the side did very well. You've changed formation today to 3-5-2. I would imagine a lot of hard work during the week in switching to that?

JLAA: Yes it's hard work but the players are quite capable of responding well to what the gaffer wants. So when you have a clear understanding, it's more easy after as you saw today. We worked on it for one day or two days.

CS: Today you paired with Francois Zoko and I think he's someone that you've known for a long time. Is it good to play up front with him?

JLAA: Yes, it was good to play with Francois. We know what we find we can do much better. But I think today was a good result for both of us. We tried to hold up the ball, and flick the ball and we just fought to keep the ball.

CS: How are you enjoying Yeovil Town? You started the majority of games here, and you've got a lot of minutes, so you must be pleased.

JLAA: Yes, I'm pleased. The only thing now for me, is that I want the team to win and I want to score goals. I'm playing but I want to do better and I want to show people that I can do better too.

CS: You think you're improving with every game, now you're having a regular run in the side?

JLAA: I think yes, but I still think I can do a little bit more.
