Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson felt that both sides created enough opportunities to have won today's 2012-13 season opener against Coventry City. The eventual 1-1 draw that those at Huish Park witnessed, could easily have had more goals besides the Cody McDonald opener for the Sky Blues that was cancelled out by a Richard Hinds header.
Speaking to BBC Somerset after the game, Johnson refused to be drawn on which side more deserved to win the game, feeling that although Yeovil Town could have easily gained all three points, that their opponents could have easily stolen the game:
"I think we did enough to create enough opportunities to have won the game. They also created their opportunities. But the fact that we're saying that it could almost be two points lost against a club like Coventry is obviously meaning that us as a club are getting further forward."
Johnson added that for his side to be a top half of the table team, they needed to be better at turning their superior possession into clear-cut chances. He felt that his side fell short in that area, and needed to work harder on delivering the final ball that would have created a winning goal on the day:
"I felt that our standards weren't quite there, for what we need if we're going to be in the top half competing. But it was there on occasions. We had enough good play, but it was our final ball. We just didn't quite get that last ball to create the opportunity. We didn't quite find our forwards or a goal. So I was a bit disappointed with that, but the lads know that we've got to raise it a little bit."
