Yeovil Town manager Darren Sarll talks to BBC Radio Somerset

Darren Sarll praised his ‘excellent’ Yeovil Town side after the Glovers grabbed 1-0 win at Woking.

Charlie Wakefield scored a 15th minute winner at Kingfield Stadium, where more than 500 Yeovil fans made the trip to will the Glovers over the line.

Speaking to the BBC’s Sheridan Robins after the game, Sarll said: “Sometimes you just have those days where you’re resolute and you hold on for dear life and today was one of them. I thought the players were excellent and the team that finished were such a young team.

I thought it [the performance] typified their spirit and we all know this is a group that wants to roll their sleeves up and give it a good go and a good fight.

It was a very hard-earned win, and it doesn’t matter how they come, we’ll take has many as we can.”

Yeovil go into Weymouth with a couple of suspensions, Mark Little was sent off after a second yellow card, and Tom Knowles picked up his fifth booking of the season on the one match he had to get through without a booking.

Sarll seemed frustrated with Knowles’ yellow, saying: “I spoke to Tom [Knowles] before the game about his four bookings and that he had to get through today. He’s gone through quite a long time without getting booked and then the daft bugger received a caution for delaying the start which was true Tom Knowles dopey fashion.”

Little was due to be rested on Tuesday, as he continues his return to fitness and Sarll felt his second yellow was ‘unfortunate’.

“I think Mark [Little] slips into it [the tackle] really, I think he loses his footing, that’s how I saw it. I don’t think Mark’s dopey enough, at 33, to dive in on a booking, so that was unfortunate,” he said.

Yeovil Town face W*ymouth on Tuesday, buoyed by a victory, while the seagull botherers lost 1-0 at Aldershot thanks to Brandon Goodship’s stoppage time own goal. Oh dear.

  • Jordan Barnett left the pitch with a hamstring injury, Sarll said he would be touch-and-go for Tuesday.
  • On the performance of new signing Ben Barclay, he said: “I thought Ben was excellent. He’s a good player Ben, he’s a very good player. He just needed, maybe, a new changing room, a new set of walls, maybe some new teammates to re-ignite that performance level.”
  • On Morgan Williams, Sarll added: “Williams is in the form of his life, for me he’s faultless at the minute.”
