7 March 2012 : Williams: Glovers Dug In After Parrett Red Card
Yeovil Town midfielder Gavin Williams felt that his team-mates had to change their focus in the game after going down to ten men last night. The Glovers played just over 45 minutes with ten men after Dean Parrett was sent off for two bookable offences in the 1-0 win against Milton Keynes Dons, leaving the away side having to defend a 40th minute lead for the remainder of the game.

Williams was the match winner on the night, scoring his first goal since August 2011, when he netted in the 1-1 draw at Walsall. He told BBC Somerset after the match that he was glad to break that duck, but praised his team-mates for ensuring they came out of the game with a clean sheet:

"It's good; it's been a while (since the last goal at Walsall) to be fair. Tonight was more about just digging in really, as soon as we went down to ten (players). The way that MK Dons play, with keeping the ball, we just had to get men behind the ball and dig in. It's a great result for us. We have been conceding goals, but we have been scoring lots, and I think the fans would take that as long as we keep scoring them. But tonight was a really good team performance. It's great to come to MK Dons, with all the goals they score at their place, and be able to get a clean sheet."

Boss Gary Johnson added his views, believing that their tactic of nullifying the Dons possession worked, but felt that it wasn't until Williams' goal that his team began to believe that it would work for them:

"They deserved the result, they really did. The tactics worked well, it took us to score for them to really believe in it. We won our headers, won our tackles and made sure we cleared towards our lone striker so it didn't keep coming back at us all the time - and how we saw the game out was fantastic. Milton Keynes are going to do well but it was our day."
