Darren Sarll has called on Yeovil Town‘s supporters to back his young side after the frustration of a goalless draw with Maidenhead United.

The Glovers’ side were faced with boos from some parts of the Huish Park crowd on Tuesday night and the manager warned that many of his players needed to be encouraged when Notts County come to town this weekend.

His comments echoed those he made following the game when he called for patience from the crowd.

He said: “Creative players like Sonny (Blu Lo-Everton) and Tom Knowles need to know they are not going to get battered for making a mistake.

“Those players have to take risks and sometimes those come off and sometimes they don’t, so we have to try and create a positive interaction which develops their confidence where they feel like they can do those things.

“The culmination of the four home games is the biggest derby the club can have in a brilliant competition, so we are building up to that.

He added that he wanted to create an atmosphere where his players “want to come and play at Huish Park” building up to the FA Cup fourth qualifying round tie at home to Weymouth at the end of the month.

The manager said he did not feel the midweek match was “quite the right start” to throw defender Jordan Dyer, who was signed on loan from Exeter City, in to action.

But, he was happy with the performance of striker Ben Seymour who played 69 minutes alongside Joe Quigley against Maidenhead.

Sarll said: “Ben has got that movement and grace in his running, he reminds me a lot of Jamie Cureton which are qualities which are different than we have.

He added he was hoping to work with Seymour, Dyer and midfielder Mitchell Rose, who has signed on a month-to-month contract, “for longer than a month.
