Manager Gary Johnson has admitted that he felt disappointment at the full time whistle in the game against Millwall, because a point felt like a loss given the chances we had and with how the 90 minutes went for us.

Speaking to the press following the one all draw which saw Yeovil take the lead through Joe Ralls in the 64th minute, before Steve Morison equalised for them 15 minutes from time, the gaffer explained.

‘It’s very frustrating as we had most of the game and a few chances we didn’t take, and of course Millwall came here and a draw is probably better for them than us.’

Johnson goes on to say the real disappointment for him defensively on the day was he felt they only had one really good chance in the game and it was the opportunity they took to bring the scores level again, and in his mind we gave them that chance because we let the cross come in and then failed to deal with it.

‘If feels like a loss because we needed to win, but now we have to go and get a result somewhere else.’

Unlike most of the season where Johnson and fans have talked about games where the very least we should’ve taken from the match was a point and we’ve ended up losing, we really are at the business end now and taking points from games that we should win isn’t really enough.

There’s a six point gap between ourselves and Millwall who sit in 21st place outside of the drop zone and whilst there are plenty of games left to make up that difference, we really need to start doing it now, not tomorrow.

When we have days like last night and chances to take all three we need to start making them count, as despite their being 17 games left by my count, there is quickly going to come a time where every game becomes must win, and that is way too much to ask, and the only place you can realistically go from there is to ‘we gave it a good go but it’s over, we’re down’ and nobody wants that.

The run of fixtures in March will no doubt decide our fate, as there are some tough games in that month, but if we can take the wins where we deserve them and get lucky in games and take a point that frankly we’d all be thankful of a point from, we will be in a much better position.

Unfortunately last night does go down as another lost opportunity though.

  • You’re not alone Gary, we’re all feeling it and must see a change and very quick as we dropped two points no doubt about it against Millwall.
