29 March 2014 : Johnson Slams 'Worst All-Round Performance' Of The Season
Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson slammed his side's performance this afternoon as he marked it as the 'worst all-round performance' of the 2013-14 season. The Glovers lost 1-4 at home against Barnsley in a match that was crucial for both sides but resulted in the Tykes picking up all three points, whilst the Glovers were condemned to the foot of the Championship table with just seven matches remaining.

Speaking to BBC Somerset after the match, Gary admitted that Barnsley were better 'in every department' and so deserved their win, even if he was frustrated that some of the goals that they got were gained through defensive errors:

"It was a poor performance. I don't think anyone turns up to see that bad a performance. The players don't turn up to see that bad a performance. But they did and it was a bit of a boyish performance today. Barnsley, to be fair, turned up and looked like in every department they were stronger, quicker, cleverer and despite going in at half time with a strong wind against us, we thought that if we were a little bit better with our control of the ball and our passing and our runs that maybe we'd get something. But the first goal was a poor goal, because we gave it to them. Then Barnsley got their tails up, and our boys didn't get any part of Yeovil's game together today."

Johnson added that his team played like a group of strangers, rather than one that was 39 games into the 2013-14 season. He warned his team that if they repeated that performance, then escape from relegation would fail, even if he was prepared to fight on until things became mathematically impossible:

"That was like a group of lads off the street that were just thrown together and were asked to play. So that's very very disappointing because that's probably our worst all-round performance in both halves. We've had some bad first halves and recovered, or vice versa. But today that was our worst performance and myself, Terry and Darren are going to have to do quite a bit to bring them round and get them back to where they should be if they want to stay in this division. Of course in every game that you lose, it looks more difficult, then until it's mathematically impossible - and it's certainly still mathematically possible - but if we play like that then we'll be bottom by a million miles."
