Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton has said that there is no cause for panic, despite his team slipping down to 20th place in the latest League One table following Saturday's games. The Glovers lost 2-0 against League One leaders Brighton and Hove Albion, as goals from Glenn Murray and Inigo Calderon saw them lose for the second weekend running.
Skiverton was missing centre-back Adam Virgo, right-back Craig Alcock, midfielder Shaun MacDonald, centre-back Stefan Stam and full-back Danny Hutchins and had seen winger Cameron Stewart recalled by Manchester United during the week. Skivo said after the game that he was keeping in mind that his team had been patched up for the fixture:
"It's never easy to have six players out against a top of the table team, and although I'm not happy with the result we did have a patched-up team. Our gameplan worked very well for 40 minutes and it could have been worse for us. The players who came in and the walking wounded did well. We see things as a challenge and there are certainly no panic stations at Yeovil."
Skiverton pointed out that a win over next week's opponents Swindon Town would see the two clubs swap positions, despite the Robins currently occupying a 15th placed slot.
