Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton believes his side put in 'a better performance' in their League Cup match against Exeter City, despite his side last night suffering a repeat of their opening day 2-0 defeat at Brentford.
Goals from and a late strike from condemned the Glovers to their fifth First Round League Cup exit in the last six seasons, as they lost 2-0 to the Grecians. Skiverton felt the main thing that was missing from his side's play was the final ball into the box, and told BBC Somerset that he felt his side were looking a bit tense out there:
"It was a lot better tonight - a lot better. I think it was more of a football game. We've just got to take our chances. We're getting in there, and people are a bit tense and a little bit nervous. We're getting into some good areas and all we needed was that final ball just to be put in and we had people in there for tap-ins. It was a better performance, but we're still just trying to find the balance of first of all the right pairing up front."
Skiverton has yet to win a League Cup match under his management, with the club's only success since the 2005-06 season coming when a Russell Slade side won away at Charlton Athletic. The Glovers boss admitted that the record was not too good:
"There's no excuses tonight, but it's customary for me to go out at this time in the cups. It seems it happens throughout all of my career in management, and during the last couple when I was playing as well."
