Yeovil Town defender Alex Whittle admitted his team-mates were “not good enough” in the 4-3 defeat at Havant & Waterlooville on Bank Holiday Monday.

The full-back was part of the defeat which shipped two goals in just 13 first half minutes as Muhammada Faal and Callum Kealey gave the hosts a dream start.
Having got the game back to 2-2 with goals from Jake Wannell and a penalty from Jordan Maguire-Drew, the Glovers gave away a sloppy penalty with Faal converted at half-time.
Speaking to the club’s official YouTube channel after the game, Whittle said there were harsh words exchanged in the dressing room at half-time.
He said: “There was a lot of frustration from the lads and the gaffer, we have to do better. We have to be coming here and winning the game because they have not won (before today) so they were buzzing at the end. But we have to lot that right next week now.
A 90th minute strike from substitute Rhys Murphy looked to have nicked a point for the Glovers before Callum Kealey sealed three points in the third minute of stoppage time.
Whittle added: “It is a team game, but defensively we have got to be better. There are some soft goals in there and you can’t come away from home, concede four goals and expect to win the games.
When it goes 3-3, I think we are on the front foot and we can go and get the winner, then we concede another sloppy goal. It was a very disappointing and we have got to be better.

“When it goes 3-3, I think we are on the front foot and we can go and get the winner”

It is not just the defence or the midfield, it is the whole team as a collective, we have got to be better. We have to stick together, we have got a good team and a good set of lads, but we have to be better.
The former York City man, who has started every match this season, refused to use the excuse of two matches in 48 hours and said the team now had to put things right when Chelmsford City come to Huish Park on Saturday.
He added: “I know it is hard playing Saturday and then Monday but it is the same for them, so it has to be better.
It was a great turnout from the fans again and they always come away with the numbers, but we have to put it right this weekend.
