Gary: It's two points dropped

9 September 2017

Manager Gary Johnson was satisfied with his team’s effort against Yeovil Town at Huish Park - but left frustrated by a lack of cutting edge in front of goal.

The Robins were dominant from start to finish in Somerset and had their chances to record maximum points, but failed to find the net for a second week in succession.

“It’s two points lost, rather than one gained, but every point is important to us at the moment,” he said.

“It’s always disappointing when you play a game like that – we did it against Stevenage but we lost that one 1-0.

“We’ve had a lot of possession, chances, an open goal and there should have been a sending off for the foul on Mo [Eisa].

“Their goalkeeper was man-of-the-match and he made a couple of fantastic saves, but the lads are gutted they didn’t score a goal.

Striker Danny Wright missed a couple of early opportunities to break the deadlock and was substituted after 23 minutes, replaced by Jaanai Gordon.

He added: “Danny’s a hard working player that really wants to do well, but he missed a free header and open goal so I just thought, if I keep getting hit around the head with a stick I’m going to have to duck at some point so I made the change.

“He was great, really professional and was more angry with himself than me.

“He came in and spoke to the strikers at half-time so he’s very much part of what we’re doing but we had others on the bench.”
