Gary Johnson: Yeovil Town fans must trust my judgement in January transfer window
Gary Johnson may need the entire of the January transfer window to ship out unwanted Yeovil Town players, asking fans to trust his judgement on the personnel he uses.
The Glovers’ boss has made little attempt to hide his desire to fine tune his squad, promising both arrivals and departures this month.
However, signings have so far outweighed players exiting Huish Park in 2013, with midfielders Kevin Dawson and Matt Dolan expected to be followed by two further targets Johnson is confident of capturing.
The boss remains tight-lipped on those players that are surplus to requirements, but speculation continues to surround Keanu Marsh-Brown who has not featured in a match day squad since Boxing Day.

Supporters were also left puzzled by the decision to bring on fit-again left-back Nathan Ralph in an attacking role ahead of striker Reuben Reid at Leyton Orient on Tuesday.
Johnson met with his out of favour players this week, adding supporters should back decisions made on the touchlines.
“That (getting rid of players) is never easy because people sometimes don’t want to leave,” he said “We’ve still got two or three weeks for that.
“By the beginning of this week a few of the lads will have had a chat with me and I will have had a chat with them about their future.
“When I pick a team and when I make subs, I do it for the right reasons but you can’t always say those reasons.
“I give as much information as I can to the supporters and if there’s something that they’re not sure about and I’m not saying anything, then people just have to trust me because all will be revealed in time, because there will always be an explanation.”
Johnson yesterday signed Joe Edwards on a permanent deal from Bristol City.
