Darren Sarll was pleased with his side’s dominant performance but disappointed that Yeovil couldn’t get the win in this afternoon’s match at Eastleigh.

Speaking after the Glovers’ 0-0 draw with Eastleigh, Sarll said: “I thought we played very very well. There’s not many times in these divisions, we’ll say League One down, that you get 80 plus minutes of dominance but I actually thought today we were very dominant for 80 plus minutes. And we’re disappointed not to win the game. When you’re that dominant and you play that well, and we did, I thought we should have, quite rightly, won the game.”

Tom Knowles received a booking seven minutes from time, when all the reports suggest it should have been a red card for an Eastleigh player. When asked about the red card, Sarll didn’t go into great depth saying: “It’s a red card isn’t it? When you run and throw someone to the floor?”

Followed up quickly with: “I don’t really care about all the crap, it was irrelevant. There was a good a edge to it [the match] to be fair, I thought both teams had an edge. We’re just disappointed that we don’t win the game because we’re so comfortable and so on top, it was a good a performance I’ve seen from us for a while.”

Yeovil announced the loan-signing of Olufela Olomola last night, and the striker went straight into the forward line with Tom Knowles and Charlie Wakefield. Sarll used quite the image when describing the signing from Hartlepool.

“We’ve flirted for many years, Fela and I, without really getting to, excuse the pun, second base. But he’s got good qualities. I thought he was very good, he obviously needs to improve physically but that only comes at this level now with game time and playing week in week out. He’s got some really good qualities, pace and power being the obvious ones. I thought he carried a threat for us. It will be nice to get him to a point, because he has had injury problems in the past, where he’s operational how we’d like him for 90 minutes. But, he’s going to score goals.”

Sarll also confirmed that the club will confirm who will fill the vacant assistant manager position left by Terry Skiverton. He said he had a couple of conditions when it came to finding the right man.

“I’m quite a dominant character in terms of the coaching pitch so its making sure that we get the right fit for the gaps that need filling. I broke this into a specification of two, of; does the individual know me and my character? Can they work with me and my character, because I’m not an easy man to work with at times. And, does he need to learn the role? Because if he didn’t know me and needed to learn the role I may as well have done it by myself. We’ve found someone who definitely knows me and will need to learn the role, but is a super intelligent chap and will be a brilliant addition to us.”

Let the guessing begin…
