Manager Gary Johnson has challenged the players to produce the 'performance of the century' when we face Blackburn Rovers tomorrow evening.
Our need for the three points on Good Friday is obvious to all, and speaking to the Official Site Johnson admitted that he knows a point won't be enough for either side on the day, so it's almost win or bust for both sides.
'A point really is not going to be good enough on the day, even though against Blackburn it would be a good result. But what you've got to think about is that Blackburn will also be thinking the same, a draw is no good for them either. They will be near enough out of it (play off battle) if they draw or lose to us so they'll be going for a win as well.'
For the gaffer that makes this time of the season 'interesting' because all teams are close to something, and fighting for something, and the focus is squarely on that because there aren't really left that you can make up points on. We are down to the last 12 available and they will make or break many a teams efforts since last summer.
'Who deals with it, which players can mentally handle the pressure and which players can come up with that fantastic goal or pass which wins their team the game. It's not now or never until you get to the game where if you lose you're out of it, that's the now or never, but it would be nice to tick off one of those wins and then only have two to win out of your last three.'
Pointing to the fact that those are better percentage odds than having to categorically win three of the last three to stand a chance.
Talking about the season Blackburn have had, and some of their results like the three one victory over QPR, Johnson jokes that 'Little Old Yeovil' really do have to go there and 'produce the game of the century' to stand a chance of pulling off the win we need and want and if we can do that he'll ecstatic because ultimately we do want to stay in this league, and of course we have already demonstrated we can face top teams and compete, so if we've learned from the mistakes in those previous games, maybe we can go one better than say the Leicester match and hold on for victory.
