"I've only made about four tackles in my entire career," joked Yeates

"Usually I don't ask people to come and watch games, but Alan Sheehan (ex-Notts County) came to watch, as did Andy Reid (ex-Nottingham Forest) and his lad.

"I was walking off the pitch after 10 minutes and Reidy's kid is saying 'isn't that your mate, what 's happening?'.

"But it was a learning curve. It was the first time I have ever been sent off. I didn't think it was a red card and it was gutting, to be honest with you."


"We've had some really good runs under the gaffer,

"When I came in and spoke to a few of the boys, I would be lying if I said they weren't feeling low.

"But I think that's the whole point of new players coming in. They come in to lift the place and I think that is what happened.

"He brought in four or five in the window, we went straight into the team and it just gives you a lift.

"But everybody has brought something to the table. It's a great club and it's been nice to come and play in front of crowds again.

"You won't get many clubs who get eight or nine thousand attendances at a game each week, even in League One.

"It's frightening. This is a proper football club. With the people in charge, they want to push in the right direction and it's definitely going that way."
