Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton has refused to criticise his players, despite them losing 0-1 at home against Colcester United last night. The Glovers boss has said that he was proud of his players for the way that they kept going despite suffering the set-back of a Kayode Odejayi goal that ultimately proved to be the winning goal:
"The levels of commitment that the players showed, I've got no complaints with. To come off a goal down against Colchester and to try and put that level of commitment in, and to try and pass the ball the right way on a difficult surface, I'm proud of them today and I'm proud of the players and the amount of effort they are putting in."
Skiverton added that he felt his side stuck to their footballing principles, rather than trying to play the ball long on a pitch that was cutting up badly. He felt that on the night, his side had matched Colchester very well:
"I think we matched them very well tonight. As you can see now, the pitch is like a ploughed field at the end of it. But we kept playing it wide, we kept saying what we said we would do. We played it through midfield and tried to create loads of chances and for us it was an unfortunate night. But if we keep playing like that and keep putting in that level of commitment in and putting your body on the line then I do see us being all right."
