The Cumbrians are only seven points above the relegation zone after securing just one win from their last eight league matches and Abbott is calling for a repeat of his side's recent victory over Brentford at Brunton Park.

"Home form underpins a lot of what you try to do and if you're picking up points on your own patch you give yourself a real chance," he told the club's official website.

"We picked up a fair bit of criticism for the way things were going here before Christmas, but we seem to have turned that around now.

"We're now into what is a very important period for the club because we need to get the points required to make sure we're at least where we are now for next season. Once that is achieved we can move on from there.

"The win against Brentford was terrific for us and if we can reproduce that type of performance then we will cause Yeovil problems on Saturday."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
