Gary Johnson: Winning half our games should guarantee Yeovil Town a play-off spot
Gary Johnson believes Yeovil Town need to win only half of their remaining games to secure a play-off spot with anything more giving them a shout of automatic promotion.
The Glovers climbed to fourth in npower League One on Saturday thanks to a 1-0 defeat of rivals Tranmere Rovers, Ed Upson's free kick proving the difference.
Whilst even Johnson admitted it is hard to stay grounded as Yeovil moved three points from both seventh-placed AFC Bournemouth and Sheffield United in second, he said there was still work to do.
"I have to keep even the experienced ones level-headed because you can enjoy reading the newspapers when you're fourth," he said. "But we're not there yet.

"I would love to go to Dubai on holiday earlier rather than later. It would be nice to get promoted automatically rather than through the play-offs but I have got to be careful not to get too excited.
"You have got to put your efforts into the next game. We know we have got to win half our games to consolidate our place in the play-offs. Winning a little bit more will get us in the automatic spots.
"Every game that comes across we have got to be bold and go for it."
On Upson's spectacular second half free kick that settled the clash, Johnson said: "We have got quality players in all areas and Ed has done that before at Bristol Rovers in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
"He's got that in the bag sometimes. You can get a little bit too intricate with set-plays sometimes and all of a sudden you've got a player that puts the ball into net and that's the attitude he showed.
"If he had missed I would have probably had a go for missing a set-play we worked on but he had a go at it and caught out the keeper."
