Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson felt his side should have been celebrating their fourth win in a row last night when the final whistle blew in the 2-2 draw against Scunthorpe United at Huish Park. The Glovers were undone by a 94th minute Jonathan Parkin goal - his second of the game - having twice taken the lead, with Johnson describing the equaliser as a 'comedy of errors'.
A Gavin Williams free kick on the half hour mark was added to by the first goal for Middlesbrough loanee Jonathan Franks that looked to have won the game for the Glovers, when he netted but four minutes into injury time, against the three that referee Danny McDermid had initially allocated, Parkin grabbed a last gasp equaliser. Johnson told BBC Somerset after the game he felt Scunthorpe were fortunate in what they got:
"I don't think they deserved to draw. Credit to them for hanging on in there, but we created all of the opportunities - or most of the opportunities, without having really good forward play. Our two goals were good and I was pleased with that - with the build-up to the free kick, and then the build-up to (Jonathan) Franks' goal. But unfortunately we didn't see out the 94 minutes."
Johnson admitted that the final goal, when it came, was down to his own side's mistakes, suggesting that 'two or three' players had contributed to Parkin's late goal:
"It was a comedy of errors in the last minute. We had already seen time out without too much worry but then two or three people made misjudgements. We are not going to let that disappoint us. We have picked up 10 out of 12 points instead of 12 out of 12 and a few weeks ago people would have ripped my arm off for that."
