Yeovil Town attacker Tom Knowles spoke to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins following the Glovers’ 1-1 with Altrincham

Knowles was please with his team mates’ reaction to the loss against Notts County but was frustrated that the winning goal didn’t come.

“We knew we had to be better than we were on Saturday, and we did that, every one of us was brilliant tonight, but it was one of those night where it wouldn’t go in for us”

Both Knowles and manager Darren Sarll spoke about how a second half chance to Josh Staunton was deemed not to have crossed the line, Knowles, like his manager thinks the decision went against the home side.

“We thought it went in, we’re a bit disappointed the officials might have let us down on that one, but we gave it out all”

“We were all up, we all thought it was a goal, the linesman and the ref were the only two people in the stadium who didn’t think it went in, which is frustrating because we’ve worked so hard to get these goals.”

The fomer Cambridge man spoke of how his role has changed and how his form has dipped but that he is starting to feel more like the player we saw last season.

“I know the past couple weeks, I haven’t been myself, but tonight I felt back to how I have been and how I was playing, a goal would have topped it off and the three points, but I’m a lot more confident, the team tonight – I’m sure you can all see – are more confident and hopefully we can take that into Saturday”
