Johnson calls for more from Glovers

30 March 2013

Yeovil manager Gary Johnson challenged his side to find "Championship form" in the next six games after their playoff push stuttered after a 0-0 stalemate with Walsall.

Both sides spurned a host of good opportunities as the Somerset side extended their disappointing recent run to five games without a win.

Johnson admitted he is concerned with the Glovers' form - and said only time will tell whether the lost points will prove fatal to Yeovil's play-off hopes.

He said: "It was disappointing because we've drawn at home in an important game. Both teams did their homework and cancelled each other out, and when we needed a bit of a spark we didn't have it.

"It was one of those games which wasn't exciting for the public. We didn't mean it to be like that, but the pitch didn't help.

"Whether it's disastrous we'll have to wait and see. We've got to worry about our form because if our form isn't good, our game in hand doesn't mean anything."

Walsall manager Dean Smith believes his side, who are now unbeaten in 11 games, deserved to take all three points away from Huish Park.

He said: "I was a little disappointed with a point because felt we had enough opportunities to win the game.

"It was tough conditions and the pitch didn't help, but we played some decent stuff at times and opened them up.

"There are five games to go and 15 points still available. I said to players before the game that this wasn't any bigger than any other game, because you can only get three points. We're enjoying playing football and playing with smiles on our faces. People talked about it as being a pressure game, but pressure is when you haven't won for 15 games."
