Gary Johnson: Yeovil Town's lack of killer touch a temporary problem
Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson believes Saturday's lack of cutting edge is only a temporary problem, backing his side to bounce back on Tuesday night.
The Glovers limped to a goal-less draw at Hartlepool United in npower League One, regularly getting the better of their poor opposition only for the final ball to disappoint.
Despite being frustrated by his team's first stalemate of the season, Johnson said he knew his side could do better against Crawley Town tomorrow.
"We had to work very hard to get our chances and I think we need a few more spotters that can find the right ball at the right time that creates a goal," he said.

"We do work on it, the lads do very well on it and it's not been a problem to us in previous games. We're one of the highest scorers in the league.
"There are not many times that we get a 'nil'. All we can do is to comment on this particular game and say that on the day - I don't believe for one minute that it will happen again on Tuesday - we just couldn't find that pass of quality that would have set the two teams apart."
Yeovil's previous 0-0 result came almost a year ago against AFC Bournemouth at the end of March 2012.
Johnson added: "If the next one comes around in a year's time it will be too soon. We will keep pushing and shoving and probing, hoping to get that goal.
"With goals at home, we have scored a tremendous amount but I am just going to need to remind them we need to be aware that the final ball wasn't going in enough for me on Saturday.
"I thought we were the ones showing the enthusiasm, pace and power to get into the penalty area a lot more than they did ours."
