FOREST Green midfielder Theo Archibald has been working on his shooting in a bid to break his scoring duck.

The 20-year-old has been involved in all of Rovers' last eight matches having worked his way into the team.

After a week's rest, Archibald has put extra focus on finishing and feels improvement in that department will help him earn a starting place more consistently.

"It's something that has been bugging me," said Archibald. "I look back and I think if I'd netted a couple I'd have maybe start the last two games.

"It's something that's been bugging me so I've been doing a lot of shooting practice with Pat Mountain the goalkeeping coach and some of the strikers.

"I'd like to think that once you're in that form of scoring goals then it comes more easily but when you're getting into a patch of not scoring, it dwells on your mind and your not so confident but I'd like to get a goal and hopefully get a few more before the season ends."

After a frustrating 1-0 defeat to Colchester, Rovers had a weekend off.

Archibald spent his free weekend back in Scotland and feels it came at a good time.

"We were given some time off to go home and spend time with our families, re-charge the batteries so I got myself home for the first time since the start of pre-season so I got to spend a bit of time with the family and saw my friends," he revealed.

"There's a couple of new born children as well so it was good family time. There is down time in football but not so much time off really - one day here or one day there.

"I think It's important when you're not on the best run of form. It's good to get away from football for a couple of days and not dwell on things and judging on the standard of training, they've gone home, refreshed and Everyone seems to be in good spirits and raring to go make amends because we've got a busy schedule so we know how important it is to start picking up a bit of form."

There was one slight frustration for the Scotsman during his weekend off. His boyhood club Celtic played in the Scottish League Cup final, which they won with a 1-0 victory over Aberdeen but Archibald was unable to watch it.

"Well stupidly I didn't bother to book a flight home so when I came to do it the only one available was right in time for the Celtic game so I didn't catch it," he explained.

"I was trying to keep up to date as much as could but once you're in the sky there is no service but I was happy with the result.

Rovers take on Yeovil Town on Saturday at Huish Park. Forest Green won their last away game 2-1 at Carlisle United and the winger says the team are confident and will be looking to hit the ground running at the weekend.

"I think if we look around the dressing room there's no reason for us not to be confident for an away game or a home game," he said.

"In recent weeks we've lost some home games and away we've won games which appear to be tough on the fixture list. We're always confident and this weekend should be no different. They're not on the best run of form so we've got to start well, get an early goal and kill it off if we can."
