Right-back Calum Woods praised manager Mark Robins for handling the aftermath of the poor performance against Ipswich.

A team meeting was held which seems to have had an effect in that Friday’s game with Brighton featured a much stronger show.

 

Woods said: “The gaffer’s done really well to get us going again. Some things were said that needed to be said.

“It was mainly about togetherness. It’s not something we’ve never been without, but we needed more if it and to really work as a team.”

He added: “I think the effect was there for all to see. We battled all together and kept fighting after they scored.

“That’s two draws we’ve had with Brighton this season and it shows we can compete with the top sides in this division.

“Given the chances we had we were a bit disappointed not to win. But we have to look at it as another point on the board.”

After a frustrating season Woods want to finally nail a regular starting berth, particularly as he thinks he works well with left-back Paul Dixon.

He said: “I’d like to think Paul and I know each other’s games. We know when each of us can go forward and when we have to stay back to defend.

“Every footballer wants to be playing games. Hopefully after the way I played on Friday I’ll keep my place.”

The game away at Yeovil on Monday could be tough as the Glovers are fighting for their Championship lives.

Woods added: “There’s been no easy games all season. Everybody’s playing for something, just like we are.

“We can’t take anything for granted. We need to perform like we did against Brighton and hopefully we’ll get the three points.”
