Johnson Not Concerned Following Torquay Draw

Johnson Not Concerned Following Torquay Draw

Manager Gary Johnson has admitted some disappointment with our pre season so far, but assured fans there is still a lot of work to do and that we are only really two weeks into our preparations.

Having been held by Torquay who came back twice from a goal down, following on from our draw against Basingstoke, our only win so far has come against Frome, it's not how anybody would've wanted to see us hit the ground following our relegation from the Championship, but speaking to the Western Gazette Johnson admitted he wasn't too concerned because he knows we have plenty of time to work on things, and of course he's putting together a new team and including trialists in games so we aren't yet at the point where the sole focus is on anything but building the squad and getting them fit.

Tactics and play will follow.

'We've learned that we've still got a lot to do, that's for sure. There were certain parts of our game that didn't show that assuredness we want from our team. We showed it in little dribs and drabs but not enough as a whole group. Sometimes you do come away from performances disappointed and I was disappointed. There were a couple of lads out there that we hadn't seen before and they did play okay, but I think the last time we drew here we wont the league and got promoted - you can't go too silly over it.'

Johnson goes on to say that especially with injuries hitting as well, everybody is aware that there is work to do, but there is time for that to happen and whilst he'd have liked a more winning start to pre season, it is about fitness, learning and gelling a squad, and that doesn't always kick in from the start. all that matters is being ready to go with the whistle of the season proper blows.

'We've got to make sure we work very hard to make them looking like a force for the start of the League One season. In pre season, if you look at a lot of the games there are teams lower than their opposition that are winning and that's how it is, it's always been like that. I would like to be winning five nil every game but when you don't you learn a lot more. We're still only 14 days into pre season so we haven't got to panic just yet.'

With key players moving on, and Johnson looking to almost rebuild the majority of the side so we can grow further and next chance we get in the Championship we make more of a fist of it, it will take a while to get fully into our flow, but it's a fair old time until the season starts properly, and lots left to be done.

Over the coming games though hopefully we'll see steady and regular improvement to show we are on the right track.
