Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton insists that he is still aiming to better last season's 14th placed finish, after his side lifted off the foot of League One today. A 2-2 draw against Exeter City was enough to send them above Chesterfield and Wycombe Wanderers on goal difference, leaving them in 22nd place at the end of the weekend's fixtures.
Last season, the Glovers finished on 59 points - 46 more than their current total - and in a relatively comfortable midtable slot. Skiverton believes that feat can still be improved upon. However, he admitted that he had to lay into his players at half time after what he saw as a substandard first period:
"I was a player myself so I know what has to be said and I'm happy that my players came out and did a good job. You have to get a response and they gave it and that transferred to the supporters who were magnificent. I'm disappointed that we didn't get three points but the performance overall was good. We are off the bottom and I'm looking to better last season's 14th position."
