Darren Sarll was happy with his Yeovil side’s ‘excellent’ performance as they sailed past Yate Town in FA Cup first round this afternoon.

Speaking to the BBC’s Sheridan Robins after the 5-0 win he praised the performance of his players and said he sees momentum  building in the team.

He said: “I thought their performance levels were very high, their training this week has been like a whole new level, really. We’re starting to find a little bit of momentum now and I thought some of the performances were excellent. I thought they dealt with the ball on quite a difficult pitch. We were very good, very good.

“The most important thing with this team, I keep saying it over and over again is, process, it’s progress, it’s time. And I just feel like we’re starting to really hit some form. When I was watching training this week I said to Terry (Skiverton), someone might get a bit of a slapping from us soon and today we started so fast, so athletically, so intense that would have been hard for a full time team to deal with.”

The Glovers started strongly in the first and second half and the manager indicated the quick openings are part of the plan.

“We’ve got a very small set of unique skills in our team and obviously the first one is athleticism. Some of them are very good athletically and we have to play at speed because they’re fast and there’s no point being fast and playing slowly.”
