Darren Sarll has called on Yeovil Town supporters to be patient with the club’s players after a frustrating goalless draw at home to Maidenhead United on Tuesday night.

The Glovers managed just two shots on target despite the visitors going down to ten men when midfielder Jay Mingi was dismissed for a second booking after 71 minutes.

Speaking to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins after the match, the manager said: “We have to be patient. Our supporters, me included, the board, we all wanted a young team and we have got to be patient with these boys.

“We have to create the environment where they feel like they can take a risk. Sonny had the ball and got in a brilliant position, he went to jink back inside on to his stronger foot to open the goal up, and he gave the ball way.

“What do we expect creative players to do? Pass it sideways and backwards? There’s two sides of the coin on that one. We have a foundation which we can build on.

The boss said he felt his side were “getting better” and described the clean sheet as “a good defensive performance.

He added: “It is another point. When you can’t win them, not losing them is an important attribute, too many games last year we lost from these positions late on.

“But, we were not smooth or effective in our attacking play but we haven’t had a game so far where we have had to dominate the ball and open teams up.

“We are still piecing together everything, we are seven games in and we have got far more points than we had last year.”
