"The aim is to finish as high as we can and we're up against a good Yeovil side who are in the Play-Offs. With the match being at Priestfield, we will have the chance to applaud the supporters after the game. They have been absolutely fantastic all season and it will be nice if we can give them a good send off. I was pleased that we scored three goals in our previous game at Priestfield. With the amount of pressure we put on Port Vale we could have maybe scored one or two more too but we just need to learn how to kill games off a bit more at times.

"When you put things in perspective we have had a relatively good season. That could be perceived as sounding a little negative as we want to be higher up the league - but I'm just saying it from a realist's point of view. The players could have easily made excuses this season, but they haven't resorted to that and deserve credit. I want them to express themselves and enjoy it, and hopefully we can finish on a high note."
