Yeovil Town earned a draw at Slough Town after two defeats in a row, in a result that Glovers boss Mark Cooper said was fair.

The manager told BBC Somerset’s Ian Randall that he needed to solidify his team for the trip, where the hosts have not lost in 15 home matches.

“I’m pleased we’ve had a real solid performance, which is what we needed and we kind of set up for after the last couple of games. We tried to take away that lack of confidence by being really solid and hoping that we nick a goal. We had a couple chances there towards the end, where we’re hoping we could land on something. But, its a solid performance [at a] difficult place, they win a lot of games here, [on a] difficult pitch, so we’ll take a point.”

“When you try and play open football, like we have done, and the confidence wavers a little bit, it can be dangerous as it was the other night. So as a coach, you want to try and put a stop to that. Make sure everyone’s in good position, not risking too much with the ball and hoping to land on something.”

Prior to the match Cooper talked about his two loan signings, Brooklyn Genesini and Jahmari Clark, revealing that Michael Smith will be out for a few weeks, and what we can expect from Reading-loanee Clark: “So late deadline yesterday, we managed to get a centre forward in that’s a real physical specimen in Jahmari Clark. He was at Forest Green last year, so Ian Weston who works with us here, knows him really well, and he’s very, very complementary. He’s got very, very good pace, physicality and I think it just complements the top of the pitch and gives us a lift. We needed a bit of spark and that’s what those two boys will give us.”
