Yeovil Town manager Mark Cooper was under no illusions of the main aim facing his shot-shy team after Tuesday night’s 1-0 defeat at Woking.

The Glovers failed to score for the eighth time this season and managed only two shots on goal – with only one being on target – during the defeat which left them in the National League relegation zone.

Speaking to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins after the game, Cooper said: “The players in the team to create did not produce tonight.

We tried to change the system and the personnel to try and gain more territory, but the aim has to be to create more in front of goal.

We have to try and develop more patterns of play that help create chances.

He added that “players in the squad that have not featured yet” may get their opportunity soon with striker Jake Scrimshaw not in the squad despite travelling to Surrey.

In the final stages at Kingfield, giant centre half Ben Richards-Everton was moved up front in a desperate roll of the dice to create something to try.

Asked about this, Cooper added: “That might be the way we have to go, stick (Ben) up front and bash balls up to him.
