Three defeats in seven-days, eight goals conceded and nine scored, all but confirmed Yeovil’s relegation into League 2 meaning we’ll suffer back to back relegations.

Following our two-nil defeat against fellow strugglers Colchester on Tuesday they opened a four-point gap on us to leave us rock bottom of League 1 with just eight-matches left so, as much as you would hope otherwise, Terry Skiverton conceded to the BBC that we’re as good as down….

We’ve still got 24-points to play for but even if we won all of our games, which is highly unlikely, the nine-point deficit we need to make up wouldn’t be overturned would it so it’s now about ‘pride’ and players ‘playing for their futures.’

‘It’s probably the end of what we’ve been trying to do.

‘Now it’s about pride. The players are fighting for their futures.’

The caretaker manager knows that we ‘changed the mentality of a losing squad’ for a while, but this was only for a ‘short time’ and now we are back to our ‘old ways’ and just done down ‘with a whimper.’

Skiverton, who is hurt more than most given his long-term association with the club, hopes that we’ll go down ‘regroup and refocus’ and come back stronger to have some positive times ahead but doesn’t know if he’ll be a part of this:

‘The chairman is working on how to take it forward and it could be an exciting time in the future.

‘Whether I’m a part of that, along with anyone else in the dressing room, is up to the people upstairs. The decision isn’t around the corner. I think it will be in the summer.’
