Johnson Delighted With Continued Fight

Johnson Delighted With Continued Fight

Despite only picking up a draw in the game against Blackburn Rovers on Good Friday, manager Gary Johnson has said he's delighted to see that the players are continuing to fight all the way to try and get us the results we need to stage an amazing exit from the drop zone this campaign.

Of itself given the quality that Blackburn carry up front, keeping a clean sheet and taking a point is a fantastic result for us really given how we have struggled, but unfortunately it hasn't changed the league table or the position we are in as wins are everything at this late stage now.

Instead of looking at the negatives of that too much though, Johnson focused on the positives when he gave his after match thoughts to the Official Site as he described Yeovil as being like a 'wasp that won't go away' as we continue to give our all in search of the unlikely.

'We won't go away will we? We're like that wasp that's still buzzing around that won't go away - and we won't. That's why I wanted to call them in at the end there because they looked disappointed and I don't want them being disappointed because it's three big games. They worked so hard, you've got to work hard when you come to Blackburn, you have a look at the results they've had recently, they beat QPR 2-0 and beat a lot of good teams here, team who are already in the play offs.'

The delight for Johnson was that the plan was to go to Ewood Park and not be 'shrinking violets,' everybody wanted to give all they absolutely had in the match to try and get the victory and he was delighted that we did just that over the course of 90 minutes.

'That just gives me heart for the next few games and hopefully we can make it a cracking end to the season. We've got to get them their legs back and we've got to make sure that Huish Park is a very noisy place because the next win would mean we find ourselves going into the last two games with something to play for.'

Following on from the result on Friday we remain five points from safety, but it is effectively six really because of Charlton's game in hand, but should we win on Monday against Huddersfield, and then other results go our way as we need them to, there would be that sliver of real hope again, but with a run in of Huddersfield, Brighton and then Middlesbrough even getting that sliver of hope, it remains a very tough ask indeed.
