Manager Gary Johnson has said he’s still keen to strengthen the Yeovil side, especially following the defeat to Sheffield United.

The two nil defeat led to Johnson telling the press that it’s time that a number of the players took a long hard look at themselves and asked whether they could or even wanted to compete at this level.

Speaking to the BBC after the game, the manager said.

‘You’re going to get games where you get beaten 2-0 by a club that has got the quality that they’ve got, but we had two or three that didn’t turn up and that’s what disappoints us. Some have got to look at themselves a bit and see whether they can affect this level.’

With the dust somewhat settling on the game, the gaffer has now done another interview because he also praised five or so players who always try very hard, but his task is to find 11 that will do that home and away regularly.

Speaking to the Western Daily Press the gaffer also said.

Ahead of the game against Rochdale, the gaffer admitted finances were tight, but if he could look to do something in the market ahead of the game that’s exactly what he’d do.

‘It looked like a few of them had lost their ability (Sheff U) to find a pass, the ability to cross it, the ability to put the ball in the back of the net and the ability to save it. But we will have to start looking to see how we can strengthen our squad, which we are doing anyway.’
