Charlie Lee talks to the BBC 📸 YTFC YouTube

Yeovil Town caretaker manager Charlie Lee has said he was “gutted” his side couldn’t earn a derby win over them lot from down by the seaside.

A fourth draw against W*ymouth this season, this time 0-0 and Lee was trying to see the positives when speaking to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins.

“I think it was a nervy affair from both teams, we set up to be a bit more solid, but I expected us to produce more in the final third, it was a bit of a non-affair in the first half.

“I was delighted in the second half, I just can’t believe we didnt manage to get the ball in the back of the net.”

The Glovers drew a blank, much like on Good Friday, despite having more possession, corners and shots on goal and Lee thinks that it may have come down to the composure when it mattered most.

“We rushed ourselves in the final third, we played some great football to get it there, we made more passes today than any other day, I think we need to slow ourselves down in the final third, we rushed everything, we had them on the back foot the whole second half.

“To be honest, I thought it was coming, I’m really gutted it didnt.”

The boss was pleased with the clean sheet despite the odd scare or two and had a special mention for the travelling supporters.

“We were desperate to win for the fans, that’s what we spoke about before the game, this one was for them, we were desperate to score.

“They were brilliant, they have been brilliant, they’ve been brilliant since I’ve been here, that was great support, even in the first half, there wasn’t much going on apart from them!”

The manager said he would patch up his “walking wounded” ahead of the game against Stockport next week, with Ben Barclay set to miss out against his parent club.
