Rochdale manager John Coleman believes that his side's 3-1 defeat at Huish Park failed to reflect the difference between the two teams. Coleman, who became Dale's boss in late January, after nearly 600 games in charge of Accrington Stanley, watched his side make a series of defensive blunders that he admitted were "Keystone Cops defending".
Despite that, Coleman thought his side should have got something out the game, and claimed that across the whole game, his side created more chances than the Glovers, suggesting Yeovil were lucky to win the game:
"We probably created more chances than them but the mistakes let us down. They would have been flattered by 3-0. They would also have been flattered by 3-1. In fact, I think they were probably flattered to have won the game."
For the record, the Press Association statistics for this afternoon's game showed that Yeovil had 60 percent possession during the game, compared with 40 percent for Rochdale. In terms of shots, Yeovil had fifteen compared with eight from the visitors; for those on target, Yeovil had eight, to Rochdale's five. The only statistic the visitors 'won' on was the number of corners: eight vs five. Over to you, Mr Coleman.
