Midfielder admits keeping heads up is tough for team
MIDFIELDER Joe Edwards has admitted it is tough to remain positive when Yeovil Town's performances continue to go unrewarded with the points they deserve.
However, the versatile 22-year-old believes the Glovers' luck will change and they will climb clear of the Sky Bet Championship bottom three.
Yeovil have just one win to their name this season – on the opening day at Millwall – and are yet to score at Huish Park.
But results have failed to reflect the quality of their play, most recently bossing proceedings against giants QPR only to be sunk by a contentious second half penalty.
Edwards said: "It's another loss which we are obviously disappointed about but there's not a lot more that we can do, apart from that quality in the final third where we need to take our chances.
"We certainly had enough against QPR but Rob Green made some excellent saves and that's why he's played for England. We've got to take the positives because we played well against a good team.
"It is a little bit tough because you are trying hard, you are trying the best you can but you are still not getting the win.
"But it's early in the season still and I think our luck will change. As long as the boys stick together, which we are, we will be ok and once we get that next win we can go from there. It's hard not to look at the table because it's everywhere but I won't take it to heart too much at the moment because of the way we are playing against top teams.
"We've just got to keep our heads up and keep going. The fans here have been brilliant for every home game and the QPR match had that feeling of the play-off semi-final.
"It made for a great atmosphere and we need that support to keep going for the rest of the season because they play a big part. You could hear the noise when the board for five added minutes went up and it means a lot.
"I don't think we realise how close we are. We haven't necessarily got the wins or the points at the moment but we haven't been out-played by any team.
"We're just lacking that final ball or final shot. If just one of those had gone in I think we would've won the game."
Former Bristol City man Edwards described the jump from League One to the Championship as "massive" but added the QPR display showed they had made the leap.
"They're all good players and it's a massive step up from League One," he said. "Most of those players were in the Premier League. We played against top players on Saturday and that was enjoyable.
"The movement and the cleverness is the difference. In League One people can run all day like they can in the Championship, but it's that sharpness, the movement and that clever play.
"You've got to respect that but I thought we did enough to win the game. We pressed them as much as we could, we were just unfortunate not to get that result."
On the decisive penalty conceded by Dan Seaborne and scored by Charlie Austin, Edwards said: "I wasn't too far away.
"It's one of those ones that looks awkward as you can see the shirt being tugged and having spoken to Dan it was half a dozen of each.
"We're not always sure we'll get that at the other end, which is what really disappoints us. It's gone against us."
