Glovers goalscorer Alex Fisher said the draw at Maidstone felt like a defeat. A late penalty decision, questioned by Fisher and new boss Mark Cooper, saw Yeovil let their one goal advantage slip.

Speaking to BBC Somerset, Fisher said: “Any team is vulnerable when they’re only one goal up. You’re just one decision away from being pegged back.It really hurts to concede to late on, it’s a draw but it feels like a defeat.”

Fisher scored an impressive header after 13 minutes, with his new manager watching on in the stands, and he said that Cooper had kept things simple in his first two days in charge, but that he expected him to ‘stamp his print’ on the squad soon enough.

“He’s kept everything very simple. It’s a fresh start and we wanted to try and get the three points today, as we do every week, and its a shame that we could quite get that today.

“I think in time, any manager would like to stamp their print on things. And I’m sure in the coming weeks he’ll start to do that. Today our game plan was to try and enjoy the game as much as we could and keep things simple and for 94/5 minutes it seemed to work.”

“Often when there is a change you do get a spike, everyone’s playing for their position as they always have been, but there’s that extra impetus when there’s a new manager. We tried to go out an play with as much freedom as possible.”
