Yeovil Town’s Jordan Barnett spoke to BBC Somerset reporter Sheridan Robins following the Glovers’ 2-0 defeat to Grimsby.

Despite the loss, and lack of fire power in front of goal, the former Notts County man said that there were plenty of positives to take from the game.

“I think we were all over them for the majority of the game, I think we should have taken our chances that we had throughout the game, and I think we’d have won the game”

“They didn’t cause us much threat, so yeah, it was an all good performance from us today I think”

Both of Grimsby’s goals had elements of luck and misfortune to them, one from the penalty spot and the second late on as the Glovers pushed for an equaliser; Barnett admits this adds to the team’s frustration.

“The first goal has killed us, obviously if that didn’t happen I think we’d have dominated the game, we’d have won that game – two sloppy goals”

Manager Darren Sarll kept faith in the majority of his side who had played a gruelling 120 minutes or more against Weymouth on Tuesday and Barnett admitted that the team felt a little tired but that it wouldn’t be an excuse.

“We are a little drained, but we go again Tuesday and hopefully get the win Tuesday night, we need the win”

The Glovers are now on a streak of eight games without a win in 90 minutes, but Barnett is sure the turn around in form is coming

“We are a young team, we are finding our way in and building a good relationship together, and I think we are playing really well and the results will come.”
