Johnson - We Need The Old Yeovil Back

Johnson - We Need The Old Yeovil Back

Manager Gary Johnson has laid down a challenge to the players ahead of this weekends game against Blackpool. He wants to see the old Yeovil back after a few 'home truths' were told following the 4-1 loss to Barnsley in our last match.

Speaking to the Official Site ahead of the game, Johnson again bemoaned the fact that the team gave 'nothing' to the supporters last Saturday.

'We didn't look like a team, we gave the supporters nothing. We didn't play our game and we certainly had no 'Yeovil' in that game and that was really disappointing, but we've had a couple of big meetings on it.'

Johnson goes on to say that in the aftermath of the game you simply have to upset a few players if you are going to have a conversation that involves a few home truths and then as a manager you wait for a reaction.

'You get rid of all those negatives so that you can start again on the positives. Now I hope that we have a group who are going to take us to the end of the season and give it a right go, because that's what we've got to have.'

With only a handful or so of games left this season, Yeovil are six points off safety, and presumably he's been happy with the reaction that he's seen in training this week and maybe that has something to do with the confidence he feels that there will be plenty of time left for a few twists and turns, and we just have to hope that when this happens it goes for us.

However unpallettable it might sound as well, there is some crumb of comfort from the fact that Leeds United may still enter administration again and if they do they could suffer a points deduction, so even on that score we have to do all that we can and this is something Johnson acknowledges as he says that four clubs come the end of the campaign could be in that position, so we simply need to make sure we get the results we need and firstly lift ourselves to safety anyway, but if not, be as close as we possibly can just in case something like that does make a difference for us in the end.

'The way you are going in football at the moment you could have four people in administration at the end of the season so you've got to make sure you can pick up as many points as you can, because you certainly don't want to lose out because you've taken your eye off the ball. Nowadays you've got to keep going because teams might drop out for whatever reason with this Financial Fair Play stuff and ownership type stuff that's around.'
