Matt Worthington said his Yeovil Town team-mates need to be more clinical after missing a number of good opportunities to pull further ahead before going down to a 2-1 defeat against Wrexham.

The Glovers had good opportunities following the opening goal from Tom Knowles which the midfielder said could have seen them with a more comfortable lead than the 1-0 advantage they took in to half-time.

Speaking to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins, he said: “We have to be more clinical and take those chances, we could have
been 3-0 up (at half-time) which is disappointing especially as we have come away with a loss.

“I don’t think we deserved to lose, but it’s back to how we like to play. We have to take the positives and move on to next week.

The Glovers have managed five goals in their past six matches, which have all ended in defeats, with Reuben Reid the only recognised striker to find the net in that time with a consolation goal in the 2-1 defeat at Southend United.

Joe Quigley was the other striker to score in that run – in the 3-1 defeat to AFC Bournemouth in the FA Cup – but he departed for Chesterfield on Friday.

But, Worthington said the improved performance against Wrexham followed an intense week of training which the team would need to take in to next weekend’s trip to Woking.

He said: “Today has put us in good stead for next weekend, we got back to basics this week and the gaffer has put us through our paces. That showed today, so we have to take the positives and get back to Saturday.
