Stevenage centre-back, Dean Wells says that the team will travel to Yeovil in much better shape than when they last did, three weeks ago in the league.

Boro battled back after twice going behind to earn a point but Wells knows a better performance is needed tomorrow as he believes we were fortunate to come away with a draw.

“We had a good first half there and I thought we did all right in the second half but the gaffer showed us the video back and to be fair, I was so surprised as Yeovil were a much better team than us in the second half.

“Yeovil got their game up and obviously they scored early, I thought we were quite lucky to nick a draw if I am honest.

“They are still struggling, their last victory was in the FA Cup obviously but it is not a league game so they might not feel as much pressure. It will be tough but we will go there with a lot more confidence than we did a few weeks back.”

Yeovil’s managerial change during the week will see former coach, Darren Way take interim-charge whilst Terry Skiverton will continue as Assistant Manager.

Although both men were part of the now-dismissed Paul Sturrock’s management team, Wells says it could still make a big difference to the opposition.

“I know they were a part of it before but the manager has the final say. They can say things to the manager before but now they have got their own ideas that he might not have listened to before.

“It might work for them, it might not but as long as we implement our own game on them, we have got more than enough to beat them.”

Boro head into the game on the back of a five game unbeaten run that has brought about a fresh enthusiasm to the squad after a difficult start to the season.

Wells says that he always felt the teams form would turn at some point.

“We knew we had the players in there; you don’t just turn into a bad team overnight. One win can just turn our season around which it did last season and I think it has this season.

“Gillingham was a big win; I think it gave everyone confidence.

“We had a big meeting beforehand where we went round the team and everyone gave their individual words and I think it just fired people up.

“People realised that you can’t drop your standards, maybe we were fluctuating a bit before, up and down but now everyone’s on it.”
