Manager Gary Johnson has admitted following our three nil defeat to Rochdale this weekend that every manager has a shelf life at a club, stating the board would decide his future and also that he couldn’t argue with fans who booed him and the performance.

Speaking to the Western Gazette a disappointed gaffer also had to admit that Rochdale could’ve easily scored more in the game that sees us now perched one point of bottom place in League One.

‘It hurts (booing) but that’s how the game went. We were two nil down quickly and I don’t send them out to go two nil down. After two minutes you probably haven’t got time to get into your pattern when suddenly you’re behind because of poor bits of play. Of course it’s disappointing, but I understand that. We have had a lot of good days at Huish and on the bad days people have every right to express their opinion of how the game went, and I agree.’

Johnson goes on to say that this is the group that he has brought in, they are his players, so ultimately there are no excuses at this minute and he knows currently, they don’t look strong enough.

‘But I’m the one that’s brought them in and has to turn it around until someone tells me otherwise.’

With questions being raised in the post match press conference about his own future again given the current situation, Johnson said they would have to ask the board and he appreciates in bad spells previously they’ve been supportive and we’ve managed to turn around, but he admitted that all manager’s eventually do have a shelf life at a club and if people are speculating that he’s reached the end of that shelf life with us, then ultimately that is ‘up to them’.

‘From my point of view and Terry and Darren’s we will do all we can while we are in charge to turn it around.’
