PLAY­ERS RE­ALLY ‘LET HIM DOWN’

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

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.
