TERRAS: Ford is benefiting from trade secrets
STEWART Yetton says he has already seen a difference in strike partner Mark Ford’s game since the two linked up in attack for the Terras.
Both have taken no time in getting off the mark this season, Ford against St Neots and Yetton, with his first for the club, at home to Frome.
And although their partnership is only a couple of games old, summer signing Yetton reckons his experience and know-how has helped Ford become a better player.
“Playing up front with Fordy is going really well,” said Yetton (inset). “I had been partnering Ben Joyce in pre-season but with the injuries we’ve picked up he has moved back into midfield.
“Fordy scores goals and is great in the box but I’ve been able to give him advice on other parts of his game and I’ve noticed an improvement since the start of the season.
“He has taken advice on board and realised that there is a lot more to being a striker than just scoring goals.
“As a striker you have to work off the ball as well as when you have it and what you do defensively is equally as important as what you do in attack.
“If you can hold the ball up you are going to help rel-ieve the pressure on the team and Fordy is learning that now.”
As for his own form, Yetton was delighted to find the net on Tues-day and is looking forward to adding to his tally in the double-header at home to Redditch today (3pm) and at Poole on Monday (1.30pm).
But for him it’s all about how the team does, adding: “It was great to get off the mark but it’s more important to me that the team is winning.
“I’d rather be in a winning team and not scoring than score and the team lose.”
* A coach has been organised for Monday’s clash at Poole. It will leave the Bob Lucas Stadium at 11am and the cost is £10. Contact Brian Walbrin on 07778579352 to book a seat.
