SCORING goals is something that Terras’ talisman Stewart Yetton clearly thrives on, but he insists he does not mind who finds the net for the side this term, as long as they achieve his personal aim of the play-offs.
The striker has enjoyed a blistering start to the campaign with five goals in his first six league games, but he is remaining grounded and focused on the group’s success rather than his own.
“I’m fairly pleased with my own form, I’m not doing too badly but it’s nothing to get too carried away with yet,” he told Echosport.
“Obviously it’s good but at the end of the day I am more worried about winning games and being part of a winning team.
“I am always going to score goals and I am not bothered how many, I just want to be part of a team that is successful and I don’t really mind what role I play as long as I am part of it.
“I would rather score six goals less and be in the play-offs, than score six goals more and not.
“If I am getting important goals, like the one against Cambridge City on Saturday, it’s going to lift the team just like anybody else. We have a great team spirit this season and we are fighting all over the pitch.
“I never really have set targets for goals, I suppose in my head I’d like to always improve on last season but with the way we set up sometimes, it might be that I am playing to the right of a front three a bit more and do a bit more work defensively for the team.”
Yetton believes that the Terras’ win at Bridge Road last Saturday was huge for the club, and nothing pleased him more than leading his troops to a derby-day victory at his first opportunity as captain.
“Dorchester is a big one in terms of the derby and wanting to win that, but the one that shows our improvement from last season is winning the game against Cambridge City,” he added.
“I don’t think many teams will go there and win or cause them as many problems as we did.
“From all of the sides in the top six or seven last year we probably only took one point and away from home we got absolutely trounced by most of them.
“Last year we would have gone there and been comfortably beaten, whereas this year we have gone there and not only have we won 1-0, we were good for the win.
“Against Dorchester I never really had a chance and I felt frustrated after, but then I thought that we had won comfortably and I didn’t really care.”
Giving an overall assessment of Weymouth’s first six games in the Southern Premier League, the 29-year-old added: “If I had to grade how we are doing at the moment, I would say we were probably at a B but we have got two of the hardest away games out of the way.”
