Hull City manager Peter Taylor was generous in his praise of the Glovers when he came out of the dressing room on Saturday. Despite drawing 0-0 at home, Taylor said he was not disappointed with the result.
The Hull manager explained: "I thought it was a very high quality game of football. I know of Yeovil, I know Gary and I thought his team were excellent. They are a very good football team and that's why I'm quite pleased with mine. I think that at the end of the day we could have shaded it late on, but they are a very tidy football team. A couple of things that happened in the game were of a much better level than Division Three and so hopefully people got their money's worth."
Taylor also had kind words for Glovers goalkeeper Chris Weale, who was the hero of the hour, turning a second half volley over the crossbar, and the home manager admitted: "It was an absolutely world class save from Ian Ashbee. It was a tremendous save, but I'm sure that is what Gary will say he is paid to do. Certainly I thought he saved Yeovil there. The saves were worthy of the Premiership and the match as a whole was of a very high standard. Yeovil are outstanding and gave us a real game. They won the Conference by miles last season and that competition is not much different to the Third Division."
