Terry Skiverton wants more from Yeovil Town

9 February 2015

Interim Yeovil Town boss Terry Skiverton warned his players that the 2-1 win against Crawley Town will count for nothing if they fail to build on it.

The Glovers came from behind to beat their fellow relegation strugglers and climb off the bottom of League 1 thanks to goals from Gozie Ugwu and Ajay Leitch-Smith.

Following the sacking of Gary Johnson in the week, the man who he took over from almost three years ago returned to the hot-seat until the end of the season and made four changes to the starting line-up.

Yeovil fell behind on 27 minutes against the run of play through Izale McLeod who confidently headed home Jimmy Smith's perfect right-wing cross.

The hosts found a deserved equaliser on 66 minutes when January signing Ugwu nodded in Sam Foley's free-kick to bag his third goal in five games.

And the winning goal arrived in the 72nd minute when ex-Crewe forward Leitch-Smith pounced on a failed clearance to score his first Huish Park goal.

Skiverton said: "Today was a decent day. We talked on Thursday about dealing with adversity.

"Being off the bottom doesn't mean a thing. It's no good getting a win and then not winning for the next five or six games.

"We didn't panic when we went a goal behind and Ajay took his goal well, it was a bit scrappy but I'll take it.

"Ajay is putting in good performances without that goal, and I said to him that where he has come from he could technically be one of our better players. Now he has got to become a man and fulfil his potential."
