Charlie Lee speaks to the BBC ? YTFC

Yeovil Town interim manager Charlie Lee bemoaned a wasteful Glovers’ performance after their 2-0 home defeat to struggling Aldershot Town at Huish Park on Good Friday.

Speaking to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins, he said that he disappointed with the goals his side conceded.

“The first half was here and there, I think we probably had the better of the chances, then, second half I thought we started really well and we looked like the team that was going score.

Then, when you concede a goal from a set piece, there was plenty of time in the game and they went straight after it, we went gung-ho and we lost our shape and when you concede another goal like that, you’re chasing the game.

“It was two poor goals that we’re really disappointed with, in a game where we were comfortable. We are not going to hide away from it, that’s too many poor goals in the last couple of games.”

Lee admitted frustration seemed to set in after a string of crosses, corners and half chances early in the second half, but said that even when going 1-0 down he was confident of a response.

“There was loads of time, we’ve been coming back from a goal down all the time, we’re confident, we’ve been looking a real threat going forward, then, once they get the second they literally just shut up shop.

“We went for it, we had more attackers on the pitch than we can imagine and probably created less chances… the boys that came on couldn’t help us, the boys the started, we looked for the first time in a few games, we didn’t look like we had that killer instinct in the final third and that’s the real disappointment.”

The caretaker boss said it was good to have centre half Max Hunt back on the bench for his first appearance since mid-January as well as to have Grant Smith back in goal, having been out for a month with a groin injury.

Charlie suggested that there could be more changes to the side with a quick turnaround and the derby at W*ymouth on Easter Monday.

“There’ll be more changes for Monday, there will have to be, they’re tired bodies… everyone who is used needs to give me everything they’ve got.”
