Yeovil Town’s goalkeeper Grant Smith said his teammates have to stick together following the defeat at York which saw the Glovers drop into the National League relegation zone.

Speaking to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins, the frustrated gloveman said: “I think we controlled big parts of the game. I think that we were sloppy on some big big decisions that obviously cost us goals. Ultimately, I don’t think were doing enough. I think maybe a draw would have been a fair result today, but when you’re at the bottom those things happen and we’re walking away with nothing.

“I think its one of those where, previously I think as good as we’ve been we’ve also been lucky, we’ve been fortunate. Whether it’s gone the other side of the post rather than on inside the of the post. Sometimes when you’re down in the battle, those things don’t go for you and we’re on the end of those at the moment.”

With Yeovil now five matches without victory, Smith was looking ahead to the visit of Altrincham on Tuesday to ‘fix’ things, but said the squad had to stick together.

“Nobody else is going to come through the building, it’s purely us. Now more than ever its a time where we’ve got to stick together. Fortunately for us, we’ve got a game Tuesday and it’s another team we’ll have to go there and try and beat them. They’ll obviously have a long journey, so it’s down to us to try and fix that and hopefully get three points.”

“It’s down to us to try and pick ourselves up and get ourselves out of what we’ve gotten ourselves into.”

He admitted in the aftermath of the defeat at York, there were some home truths told: “Players have been told that what they’re doing isn’t good enough and things that have happened today that ultimately aren’t good enough. We can’t throw anybody under the bus, because at the end of the day we’re all it together. We won’t get many new bodies through the door so ultimately it’s down to us to try and pick ourselves up and get ourselves out of what we’ve gotten ourselves into.”

Smith thanked the 167 travelling supporters and apologised that the team couldn’t get a result, but urged the Huish Park faithful to come out on Tuesday to support the team.

“When we get that ground in full voice, it gives us almost an extra man, it gives us that confidence to go and play and go an express ourselves and hopefully we can get the win,” he said.
