Johnson Proud Of Players Despite Loss

Johnson Proud Of Players Despite Loss

Gary Johnson has talked of his pride at Yeovil's performance today against big money QPR, and he believes the players have more than done themselves credit.

Speaking to the press following a Charlie Austin penalty become the only thing to separate the two sides on the day, Johnson said that he was going to enjoy watching the DVD replay of the game tomorrow because of the quality of the performance and he felt the result was desperately unfair on the players because they outplayed the opposition for large periods of the game and it's not a case of thinking we deserved a point, he believes we deserved all three.

However, results count, and despite his pride there is that element of disappointment.

'We can't keep being unlucky and we don't want to be relegated as the unluckiest team ever. We have to start putting our opportunities away.'

The positive in that sentence for Johnson is he admits we aren't always going to come up against such a quality goalkeeper as Robert Green who he believes had an absolute stormer between the sticks today, and was literally the only reason we didn't win the game and by a comprehensive scoreline.

'We need to keep plugging away and believing. We can go home happy in the fact that we gave more than we got, the players will be disappointed, we've got to improve in certain areas and we will be relentless in our coaching and our attitude.'

Johnson adds that it's not our football that is letting us down at the moment, it's individual errors and moments of luck that don't go for us, but hopefully that's something that will change in the coming weeks as we are generally doing ourselves credit on the pitch, but we just aren't taking the chances.

Even Harry Redknapp has admitted that Yeovil deserved to win the game today in his aftermatch interviews, and that really does speak volumes, but as above, we need somebody to take charge and make something happen in the final third so we start picking up the results that we deserve.
