Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson felt his team as a whole needed to show some improvement in their play after their 1-1 draw at Huish Park earlier today. Having seen a Rohan Ince strike pegged back eight minutes from time, the Glovers boss felt that although a number of individuals showed their class, that some needed to show more responsibility.
Speaking to BBC Somerset after the game, Johnson singled out centre-back Byron Webster and midfielder Ed Upson as two of his stand-out players along with strike pair Reuben Reid and James Hayter, and said that as singular players they performed well, but felt his side didn't always look at ease with themselves:
"We weren't totally comfortable with the way that we played. There were a few individuals that did okay; that tried to get us into the game, and win the game. Ed Upson, Byron Webster, Reuben Reid and (James) Hayter worked hard. So there were a few of them that did okay as individuals."
The Glovers boss added that he felt that his team as a unit wasn't as well organised as it should have been, implying that there is still a fair bit of work to be done with the team's shape and their responsibilities:
"We certainly didn't recognise our game for long enough. We needed to see that, so that everyone knows what their roles are going to be when it comes to a League situation at any point, and people know where they need to be. It's down to their form on the day, but at least then they can be organised."
Next up in the pre-season schedule for the Glovers is a pair of matches in South Wales, with Johnson taking his side away for a few days, taking in Welsh Premier League side Llanelli on Tuesday night, followed by a Friday evening match against Conference National side Newport County.
