Sarll on media duties

Yeovil Town manager Darren Sarll was delighted with his side’s performance against play-off chasing Bromley.

The Glovers won 2-1 to record back to back wins after Saturday’s victory at bottom club Dover Athletic.

Speaking to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins, the manager was full of praise for a number of his players:

“They were good you’ve got to give credit where credit is due, they looked so energised, engaged, motivated, all the great things you want to see in a team, I actually thought tonight we got to see a glimpse of the future”

“(Tom) Knowles looked like himself, I thought Lawson (D’ath) was great tucked in on the left, Matthew (Worthington) looked like a Football League player rather than a National League player.”

“Really good performances all round, we will work again Thursday because this new attitude is quite enjoyable to watch at the moment.”

Goals from Lawson D’Ath and Tom Knowles sandwiched a Bromley equaliser that came as a result of an error from loanee Ted Cann in goal, Sarll was delighted with the way his team bounced back and was happy with Cann’s overall performance.

“I was really pleased with Ted, you come to a club like Yeovil and it’s not easy… I said to Ted at the end there, ‘when you woke up this morning, what did you want us to achieve?’ he said ‘for us to win’. I said, ‘job done’…

“I said you made a brilliant save at the end of the first half at 1-1, you took three or four really good crosses… for a 21 year old, who has made a bad call in the first half to then come again I thought that showcased his character splendidly.”

There was further praise for Reuben Reid, who made only his second start of the season and was key to everything the Glovers did going forward.

“He takes a lot of criticism does, Reuben, but at times I thought he unplayable at times tonight… I thought our attacking play was excellent, but it was excellent because Lawson had a good game, Tom Knowles had a very good game and Reuben was untouchable with the ball at his feet.”

Yeovil have now scored four goals in two games something which the gaffer hopes can be taken into the weekend’s game against Southend United and for the rest of the season.

“The fact that we have scored four goals in the last two games is good for us, it lifts everyone, it makes them believe in their attacking play a lot more, it’s probably the most amount of shots we’ve had here for a long, long time, that was really pleasing”.

Yeovil host the Shrimpers this Saturday, with their visitors losing against Maidenhead United on Tuesday night despite taking the lead.
