Yeovil Town defender Jamie Sendles-White has said that the side are taking the positives, but are working to put things right after the Glovers were held 1-1 by Maidstone on Saturday.

Speaking to the Yeovil Town Youtube Channel, the central defender praised his side for getting back into the game from 1-0 down, but admits the team wanted more.

“There’s quite a bit of disappointment in the changing room, but that’s because of the standards we’ve set ourselves, i think, we’ve spoken in there and said it’s important not to overlook the positives; we’re unbeaten at home, that’s seven points in three games we’ve got at home.

“We didn’t lose today, we got back and got another late goal, I think in the first half we had spells where we looked much better, but we didn’t probably take our chances, or maybe create enough chances as we should have done, there’s disappointment, but we don’t want to beat ourselves up too much, because we know we can get back on the training ground, we know the players we’ve got and it’s a work in progress, we’re confident we can build on it and we can put things right.”

JS-W was back in the side having been on the bench for the wins against St Albans and Truro, but said that he (and his long throw) were happy to be back in the side, even if the result didn’t go the way he wanted.

“As a player you want to play every game, from a personal point of view, it was a little bit of a disappointment that I wasn’t playing but the boys went and won the two games which was the most important thing.

Long throw ins are so hard to defend against, so it’s nice to be able to add that to the team, there was one (chance from a long throw_ today, from where I was, that looked like it was over the line, so it’s another threat that we’ve got, but we can improve bits in our open play that will help and we might rely on the long throw as much.”

With the game drawn, for former Welling man said that on the whole Yeovil’s dominance deserved more and there are ways they can improve to see teams off.

On the whole, they (Maidstone) had no chances, I don’t recall any other chance today other than that one goal and that’s where we need to be more clinical, as a team, to put our chances away, so when we concede, if we concede one like that, we’re not on the back foot and chasing the game again.

It would have been extremely unfair to have at least not got a point.
If you reflect on the game as a whole, we probably deserved the three points.

You’ll get an idea after ten games, like most leagues, but It’s important we take the positives from today that we’re unbeaten at home and we’ve got seven points from three games, we’ve got another home game coming up on Saturday and hopefully we can keep that home run going and put some things right in training this week and go again Saturday.

That was not fun to watch. It wasn’t good football but it doesn’t have to be. It just has to be better than the opposition and it wasn’t.

Even if we had won I wouldn’t want to watch that every week!
