Way: We could’ve scored ten in triumph
YEOVIL boss Darren Way believes his side could have scored ten as they picked up their first win since the end of January with an excellent performance at Morecambe.
Way saw his side squander a host of late chances but in the end it was the only blip on a first win in nine games for the Glovers.
Way said: “We were excellent and no disrespect to Morecambe but we could have had ten and the lads are a bit disappointed that we didn’t score more.
“To come to a place like Morecambe and play like we did was fantastic. It’s not a great pitch but we played some good stuff and the effort from every one of our lads was phenomenal.
“We haven’t had the best of runs but I have told the lads to stay positive and that hard work would give them the results we deserve.
“We have not played as badly as the results suggest but they worked hard all week and got their rewards. We stood strong and got the win we deserved.’’
Morecambe boss Jim Bentley admitted his side could have lost by a greater margin and was disappointed to concede three goals for a second game in succession.
He said: “Although we were not reaching the heights that we did in February, at 1-1 I thought we would kick on and take the points.
“But after they scored the second we got scrappy. We lost a lot of belief and had the stuffing knocked out of us and in truth we could have lost 7-1 or 8 -1, which was disappointing.
“Even when we had chances going forward at 3-1 we took the wrong option and looked lacking in confidence and I have to say Yeovil were deserved winners.’’
An even first half ended with the Glovers taking the lead.
Substitute Matt Butcher had only been on the field for a matter of minutes but with his first touch of the ball beat Barry Roche with a vicious, dipping volley from the edge of the box to give the visitors the lead.
Morecambe levelled early in the second half when Everton loanee Antony Evans scored from close range after Arturk Krysiak had saved from Paul Mullin’s shot.
But it was Yeovil who struck next when Alex Lacey scored from close range after a goalmouth scramble and Bevis Mugabi clinched victory with a header from Ben Whitfield’s corner.
Way’s side then wasted a clutch of late chances with Francois Zoko and Tom Eaves missing the target from close range and star man Whitfield dragging a late shot wide, but in the end it mattered little as Way’s side collected three points.
