With transfer plans still ticking over in the background and awaiting answers from clubs as we attempt to strengthen to secure our Championship status for the 2014-15 season, manager Gary Johnson has assured fans that one thing will remain true regardless of what happens with permanent deals this month, or even emergency loan deals next month, Yeovil will fight until the final minute for safety.
The league table remains very tight indeed with us now joint bottom of the league alongside Barnsley on 17 points as we head into the game against Birmingham City this weekend, but despite losing our last four league games without question, we remain only five points off escaping the drop zone, and like Barnsley the position looks slightly brighter when you consider we do have a game in hand over Doncaster and Millwall who are immediately above us.
As has been the case all season despite the wins we have failed to pick up there is certainly no reason with this number of games left for faith to be lost that we could put a small run together that would make all the difference in the world to the placings.
Speaking to the Western Gazette the gaffer explained that whatever our ultimate fate may be this season, he will ensure everyone at the club fights as hard as they can to achieve our aim.
'You've got to keep going, see what happens and don't show the white flag too early - you never know what might happen. It's a tough game (Birmingham), but like all these games, if we can give ourselves a chance then maybe one week we'll get a little bit of luck and suddenly the judgement goes in our favour or instead of hitting the crossbar it goes under. The lads are still up for it, we're working hard.'
As for Birmingham the gaffer adds that whilst they may not have won many games this season, they haven't lost many either, so he knows it'll be tough for us to break them down, so it's a case of staying tight at the back and then taking our chance when it comes along to capitalise on their penchant for a draw.
Johnson also said that he definitely disagreed with reports that Burnley were a 'gulf apart from us' in our last game, because he doesn't feel we were slaughtered, we were in it and it was relatively tight, and for him it was one of those games where yes they were the better side overall but had results have been better for us and confidence higher, it's one of those games we would've got something from.
It's not endeavour and fight we are lacking, if anything it's that experience in the moment, at a slightly different pace in this league, but you only learn that by playing more and getting it right, and he feels we can take a lot by getting so close to a quality side like Burnley, because in the league they deserve to be where they are.
