Yeovil Town director Stuart Robins has said manager Chris Hargreaves‘ record of two wins in 17 matches in charge spelt the premature end to his time in charge at Huish Park.

The shareholder said the club was looking to “bring someone in with experience at this level and above” with former Forest Green Rovers and Swindon Town boss Mark Cooper thought to be in the frame for the job.

Speaking to BBC Somerset’s Matt Faulkner on Thursday afternoon, Robins said the club’s exit from the FA Cup at the hands of lower league Taunton Town was “an incredible disappointment”, but insisted that was not the end for Hargreaves.

He said: “The only way that the fans will get really behind the team is if we produce a winning team, we have got to win football matches.

That is the disappointment (of Hargreaves’ tenure) because in the some games we played some really good football but didn’t come away with the results.

Chris often used to say to me ‘I do understand this is a results business’ and it is, we have got to win football matches.

Even if we win ugly that’s fine because at the moment we just have to climb up that league and if that happens the fans will get behind us.
