It was all disappointing in the end on Saturday but the SkyBet Championship defeat, and the manor of it, against Leeds has been and gone with the post mortem carried out so we now move on and look to the remainder of the season.

What a huge game The Glovers have against Millwall tomorrow, which starts a run of fixtures up to the end of next month that could decide our fate.

Gary Johnson has told The Western Gazette that he still believes that we’ve got the ability to avoid relegation as we’ve not been ‘far off’ picking up draws, or wins, in some games we’ve lost but what we have got to do is cut out the costly errors.

Some ‘moments of brilliance’ are being targeted by Johnson to inspire us to a great SkyBet Championship relegation escape.

‘In the result we haven’t been far off because they have all been odd goals. Even Forest was 2-1 when we were pressing and they got their third.

‘We know that we’re not a million miles away but you can’t make mistakes at vital times and you`ve got to have your players coming up with a bit of brilliance or quality to win you the game. That’s what we’ve got to find.

‘We haven’t won that many games but the ones that we have someone has come up with a bit of brilliance. We have to do that more often.

‘Have we got that in the club? Yes we have, because we’ve seen it every now and then. But we’ve got to show it more often and then we will start winning games.’

How we perform at Huish Park will determine our fate, I really did think for most of the first half against Leeds that we would start our revival with a win but then the missed penalty saw my heart sink and from that moment on I worried.

That game has been and gone though and we move on.

Millwall is the first focus, and we’ve got to win this one, but with Doncaster, Sheffield Wednesday, Charlton and Barnsley all coming to Huish Park in the next six weeks or so these are games that will tell us if we’re staying up or going down.
