Scholes is role model for Upson - Yeovil boss Skiverton

Yeovil boss Terry Skiverton believes Ed Upson's game has improved after he studied the form of ex-Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes.
The 21-year-old has scored twice in nine games for the Glovers this season including a 30-yard strike against Wycombe on Tuesday.
"People can see the change in him," Skiverton told BBC Points West.
"We gave him the module of Scholes - he's watched clips for him and others who dominate football."
Upson came through the Ipswich youth set-up and signed for Yeovil in July 2010.
He made 24 appearances for the club last season but only managed to score once.
Skiverton continued: "Ed came as a scrawny lad but with great ability.
"He's someone I'm really pleased with. Darren [Way, coach] has done loads of work with him on strengthening, getting him in that mindset to be a little bit nastier.
"Everybody says Scholes is a bad tackler but he just wants to impose himself on the game."
