Captain Josh Staunton admitted his Yeovil Town team-mates had only themselves to blame after a 2-1 home defeat to Barnet on Tuesday night.

The central defender described the two the Glovers gifted to striker Nicke Kabamba as “sloppy” and admitted their failure to finish off a host of first half chances cost them.

Speaking to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins after the game, he said: “We’ve only got ourselves to blame, we need to be more clinical in their box and more ruthless and better positioning or decision making in our third and then we won’t concede two sloppy goals.

That has been the story of the first two-and-a-half games we’ve had this season because the first half (of the opening day defeat) against Scunthorpe was a different matter.

It is disappointing that we only have one point to show from it because you know how you are playing and we are playing some nice football and you can feel that energy from the fans.

We have the basis of a very good team and I have to not let the results affect these young lads because we are doing the right things and hopefully when we start putting our opportunities away, we will be fine.

With three games played, Yeovil are second-from-bottom of the National League table with just a single point with goal difference of minus two – however, Staunton is not planning on hitting the panic button just yet.

He added: “It is three games in and it would be nice to have points on board, but it’s not the end of the season. When those vital moments start going our way, I think the points will reflect our performances.

I don’t think there is anything to worry about, it’s not the first time I have been in this situation but the signs are there but if we tighten up at the back and get a few more goals, we will be okay.
