GARY’S CALL FOR GLOVERS TO RELIVE GLORY
GARY Johnson has summoned the spirit of last year’s League One play-off push to keep Yeovil in the Championship – starting today at Nottingham Forest.
The trip to the City Ground is the Glovers’ fourth away game in a row, and second within a week to the East Midlands after Tuesday’s demoralising 3-2 defeat at Derby, a game they led 2-0.
And Johnson wants an immediate response.
“We need last year’s endof-season atmosphere, because the remaining games are as important to this football club as the playoff semi-final and final last season,” he said.
“Staying in this league is vital for this football club. It is vital we stay here to gain another year’s experience
PLEA: Gary Johnson also to get the Football League money back into the club.”
Yeovil remain bottom of the table but have four home games in a row after this clash against their highflying hosts.
Leeds, Millwall, Watford and Doncaster all travel to Huish Park in February and Johnson – who will replace Forest loanee Ishmael Miller with James Hayter – is still believing.
“The remaining home games are absolutely crucial,” he added.“The earlier we can get the wins that we require and get closer to the teams that are just outside the relegation zone the better.
“We have worked very hard over ten years to get here, now we need an unbelievable football club effort on and off the pitch for our remaining home games.”
