Yeovil Town midfielder Matt Worthington spoke to the BBC after a frustrating 0-0 draw with Wealdstone on Monday.

Despite the visitors having ten men for nearly an hour, Yeovil couldn’t find a winner, something which frustrated Worthington as much as supporters.

It was a tough game, the sending off sent them down to ten men and they sat behind the ball and we found it hard to unlock them. I think we just missed that little bit of ability to unlock them and get the goal, so yeah, very frustrated.”

Worthington, who was returning after a four match suspension, admits the side should have found a way through.

I still think we needed to be better at times. A couple times this season a team has gone down to ten men and we haven’t been good enough to unlock them, it’s something we have to work on.”

“We do press really well, we do with the ball up high, but we need to take more chances – we’re not happy with just a point we should have had more.”

There was concern for the Glovers lack of quality from set pieces but despite that and the result as a whole, there was praise for the attitude of the side, who continue to push despite the season drawing to a close.

We are playing for personal pride as well as for the club, I know that whenever I get the chance to get on the pitch I’ll give it my all, and everyone else in there does.”

Worthington, who is by far and away the longest serving Yeovil player at the club confirmed that there had been discussions regarding his future after Chairman Scott Priestnall said last week he had begun offering contracts to players.

I’ve loved being here, I’ve loved the amount of games I’ve played and I really enjoy the place and I’m happy. There’s been (contract) discussions, but I’m just concentrating on the pitch for the last few games and then whatever will be will be.”

Que sera, sera, for Worthy as the season comes to an end.
