Keanu Marsh-Brown benefits from time on Yeovil Town substitutes’ bench
Keanu Marsh-Brown’s time out of the Yeovil Town team has made him a stronger and harder working professional.
After dipping in and out of manager Gary Johnson’s immediate first XI plans, the attacker has started the last five games and played a starring role in last week’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy triumph at Torquay United.
Marsh-Brown, who arrived at Huish Park in the summer, was a threat whenever in possession and set up James Hayter’s last minute equaliser before firing home the decisive shootout penalty.

The 20-year-old said being dropped was an important part of the learning curve as he looks to fulfil potential that first caught the eye of Premier League Arsenal and Fulham.
Marsh-Brown said: “I went into the Torquay game positive having worked a lot with the gaffer, Terry Skiverton and Darren Way on my game. This is showing in my games.
“The time out of the team made me stronger as a person and a professional, making me work harder on and off the pitch. I have only got better and now that is showing in games. To get on the score sheet is a great feeling and hopefully I can push on.”
