Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton has warned that his team and the club's supporters should not get carried away with Saturday's result against Brentford. The team broke a nine match run without a win by gaining a comfortable 2-0 win over the Bees, and have hopefully turned the corner after a worrying sequence of results.
However, Skiverton has said warned that tomorrow night's opponents Millwall will represent tough opposition. Speaking to the Western Daily Press he felt that it was important that there was focus on the next fixture:
"We are going to have some good games, we are going to have some bad games and we are going to come up against some good sides. The trick is for me to not get too carried away because we have only got two days before we have got another big game against a massive club with a big wage bill and good support who have been up there in the Championship before. You cannot get too cocky and arrogant. You have got to be humble so when the lows come, you do not get too low. That is what we have got to do because it is a long old season and there will be some good months and some bad months."
Just as the Glovers should not get too distraught at poor runs of form, they should not allow themselves to go overboard when the wins come. Skiverton now needs to turn attention to the club's away form and attempt to eradicate another unwanted record. The Glovers last won an away match on February 14th, at Peterborough United, when Russell Slade was still in charge, and the Yeovil boss hinted that even though his side won on Saturday, that he still might tweak things for the trip to the New Den:
"We have not had any results away from home, so I may have to switch the way we play because Millwall lost (to Leyton Orient), so they will be coming all guns blazing against us. We have got a very young side and there will be times during that game where we will have to ride our luck a bit."
