PLAYERS REALLY ‘LET HIM DOWN’
questions of themselves, because they can do better than that.
“We are finding out who can handle the pressure and who can’t and I won’t allow a situation to develop where the same players keep letting us down.”
In contrast, Morecambe manager Jim Bentley was delighted with his side’s fightback that transformed the game in their favour.
“It’s a massive three points for us,” he said. “You can’t underestimate anyone in this division and Yeovil are muchimproved under Darren Way.
“Credit to both sets of players for playing so well in difficult conditions. It was a good, hard-fought game.
“It had a bit of a cup-tie feel about it and our lads deserve great credit for fighting back to win after going a goal down.
“We’ve needed our goalkeeper to make a few good saves and we had a nervous last few minutes but we managed to hold on.”
Yeovil were awarded a first-half penalty when Shaun Jeffers was tripped in the area but Matt Dolan’s spot-kick was saved by Barry Roche. They went ahead after the break when Roche flapped at Compton’s corner and Ward bundled the ball into the net from close range.
In the 74th minute the home side equalised as Ellison pounced on a mistake from Jakub Sokolik and fired a left-foot shot into the roof of the net from 15 yards.
And with 10 minutes left they went ahead when Jamie Devitt sent Miller racing clear and the striker coolly shot past Town keeper Artur Krysiak.
Iffy Allen had a late chance to level for Yeovil but blasted the ball over the crossbar from close range.
