Darren Sarll has called for more from midfielder Tom Knowles despite the midfielder scoring a trademark winner in Yeovil Town‘s opening pre-season friendly.

The 22-year-old’s strike ten minutes in to the second half of the game at Stratford Town was enough to separate the sides.

Asked whether he was impressed with Knowles’ performance, the manager said: “I thought he scored a good goal, I thought he scored with the hardest chance of his game, but I was not particularly impressed with Tom.

“I thought he was in and out of the game, he struggled with his position, he struggled to find the chink in the amour of the opponent.

“He took his goal well and we know he has good quality like that, but if young players want to be top players the standard is ridiculously high and they have to set ridiculous standards to try and attain it.

“So Tom has got some work to do, but they all have.”
