Morgan Williams said Yeovil Town’s players must “stick together” after their exit from the FA Trophy at the hands of Dorking Wanderers.
The defender said the squad were committed to turning around their woeful record in front of goal as they failed to find the net in normal time of the third round tie before going out 4-1 on penalties.
It means the Glovers have scored just three times in 450 minutes of football with two of them coming in the Somerset Men’s Premier Cup win over Taunton Town.
Speaking to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins after the Dorking defeat, Williams said: “We have to stick together as a team, we can’t go against each other. We defend as a team and we as defenders have to be scoring more from set pieces which we have said numerous times.
“We have to stay switched on and keep listening to the Gaffer, Toddy (assistant manager Chris Todd) and the staff about where to be when set pieces come in and we have to be the ones who put the ball in the back of the net.”
However, the clean sheet means they have only conceded twice in their past six matches – with one of those coming against Taunton – and the goalless draw in the Trophy tie was their fifth clean sheet in that run.
Morgan added: “I feel confident. As a back line I trust the players next to me whoever I am playing with, we trust each other as a team defensively.
“We know that if the ball comes in to our box we are going to defend it, but we need to do it at the other end, if the ball goes in to their box we need to score.”
