Goalkeeper Marek Stech believes the strength of Yeovil Town is holding the team in good stead as they continue their push for the play-offs.

The Glovers play fourth-placed Brentford at Huish Park tomorrow and will be hoping to extend a run of four straight npower League One wins that has seen them rise to seventh spot – just three points outside the top six.

Stech is also confident that Yeovil have what it takes to beat Brentford and sustain their play-off push.

He said: "We were nearly all new players at the start of the season but we've been together for a few months now so we all know how to work together.

"It's great that everyone of us wants to work for each other and wants to get to the play-offs and it would be a great achievement for the club.

"Our target is to beat Brentford and get another three points. It will be a hard game for us but we beat them earlier in the season and it was a great result, so even though they've improved a lot since then I think we can win the game."

Stech also believes the stability the club is currently enjoying is very important, with Yeovil keeping nearly all of the squad together during the transfer window.

Despite the Glovers defying pre-season expectations to push for the top six, the club has managed to keep hold of all of their star players, with fringe players Reuben Reid and Keanu Marsh-Brown the only players to leave during January.

"It helps us a lot. We've managed to keep all of our main players and that's very important for us," said Stech. "We've had new players come in as well which has helped all of us and that's the important thing for the team."

The giant Czech Republic Under-21 international was also full of praise for the effect Paddy Madden's good form has had on the rest of the team.

The Irishman bagged both goals in the Glovers' 2-1 home win over Milton Keynes Dons on Tuesday, when the game went ahead in boggy conditions after heavy rain before the match almost caused it to be abandoned.

"He's a brilliant lad and he's done so well for us. He's proved himself every Saturday and he's scored the most goals for us which is really good for the whole team," he said.

"It was a great opportunity for us to play MK Dons in those conditions because they didn't want to play in it. It was a great win for us, all of the lads are buzzing, and we're ready to win again on Saturday."
