Boss hails team's attitude in comprehensive cup win
GARY Johnson hailed his Yeovil Town team's refusal to be taken over by "big time Charlies" and "Mr Greedys" in a comprehensive 8-0 drubbing of Radstock Town.
The Glovers cantered to a Somerset Premier Cup meeting with Weston-super-Mare next month by hammering their hard-working Toolstation Western League Premier Division visitors.
Braces for Paddy Madden and Kieffer Moore gave the hosts a 4-0 half-time lead, before Sam Hoskins' fine finish and Seth Nana Twumasi's diving header extended the lead.
Kevin Dawson converted a late penalty and Andy Williams atoned for a string of misses by completing the scoring at Huish Park.
With 11 Yeovil players in Monday night's squad also named at Middlesbrough in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday, Johnson said he was pleased with their reaction to the 4-1 reversal.
"The team that we started was the team that didn't play 90 minutes on Saturday," said the manager. "We worked out who hadn't played 90 minutes, put them together and put them in some sort of shape.
"To be fair, they could've gone out there and been big time Charlies but they weren't and they got something out of the game.
"They got a few goals and I'm sorry to Radstock but that was the team we had to play. I thought the lads got a bit of fitness out of it, with 90 minutes of getting the ball, trying to find that pass and sticking the ball in the net.
"There were a lot of other opportunities so we've still got to work on it and it took Andy a little while to get that goal.
"I thought they all worked very hard for each other and there weren't too many Mr Greedys. They were trying to pass to each and create opportunities for each other so we made it a worthwhile situation and a worthwhile game."
Yeovil, who are now without a league game until Saturday, October 19, will play Weston at Huish Park in the week beginning November 4.
