Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton admitted that he was disappointed with the way that this afternoon's match against Huddersfield Town 'petered out' after a strong first half showing. The Glovers looked to have the game well under control when Andy Williams struck before the break to put the home side 1-0 up.
With former Glovers right-back Lee Peltier red carded for an incident involving Dean Bowditch all appeared to be going to plan, until Antony Kay's second half header forced an equaliser, and Skiverton has his side failed to apply pressure on their opponents:
"I am disappointed because of the way the game petered out in the second half. We didn't get our passing going like we did in the first half. We got a bit tippy-tappy and the pitch played a part. It was disappointing to be playing 10 men and not putting pressure on them in the second half."
The Glovers had numerous chances before the Terriers equalised to seal the game, and Skiverton admitted that he thought the game would end with a 1-0 scoreline at that stage. However, he still felt that his side had gained an important point given the other scores in the division that kept Yeovil five points clear of the drop zone:
"We had the chances and I thought one goal would be enough. We knew that if we gave them chances from set plays it could give us problems and when they got the goal it came from a corner that could have been cleared for a throw-in. These things go against you when you are down at the bottom but it turned out to be an important point for us, especially as a couple of the other teams around us drew as well so didn't claw back on us."
