Chairman and manager are meeting at Yeovil this week in the hope of finding out who is hot and who is not as we look to ‘salvage a disappointing season.’

John Fry has told the Western Gazette that he’ll be meeting with manager Gary Johnson and they’ll talk about putting the disappointing season back on track with the priority being league 1 survival, which isn’t something we would have anticipated being the ‘least of our priorities’ back in August….

A ‘full review’ will be undertaken this weekend with is decided where the weaknesses are and how we can strengthen.

Fry has moved to stress that he has every confidence in Johnson turning things around, that isn’t something that is under review though – his position as manager is safe.

The chairman said: ‘It’s been disappointing this season, there are no two ways about it and we didn’t expect to be bottom. If we were in a different position in the league we obviously wouldn’t so concerned about what we now have to do in the remaining part of the season to pull everything into line to achieve our objectives.

‘We’re looking to identify the weaknesses in the outfit. On the playing field, Gary knows where those weaknesses are and if we didn’t have that confidence in Gary, what are we doing here?’

What’s been has been, we can’t undo that we can only improve going forward, and this is what Fry is sure we can do with himself and the board looking to back Johnson as best we can, but the reality is the finances are always tight at Huish Park….

The FA Cup windfall from drawing Man United at Huish Park will certainly help though, and this WILL be available to Johnson as much as possible.
