Strikers could face axe as Johnson contemplates changes
YEOVIL Town's strikers could be the first to feel the force of Gary Johnson's axe as the manager threatens changes to his side.
The Glovers slipped to a 2-0 defeat at Burnley in the Sky Bet Championship last weekend, with the hosts punishing their visitors for spurning golden chances.
Wideman Liam Davis missed an open goal from five yards and Danny Seaborne wastefully nodded wide in the second half.
But just one of the missed opportunities fell to one of Yeovil's front two, James Hayter scuffing over in a good position.

Johnson has five strikers at his disposal, yet none of them have found the net in four outings in all competitions this season.
The boss admitted his dismay at his team's lack of threat in the final third and promised changes if their dismal start to the campaign did not end.
"They don't look like they're anywhere near a goal at the moment," said Johnson. "We will have to work out whether that's the level or just them having a poor time at the moment in front of goal.
"So therefore until we sort other things out we have got to give others the chance and if they do the same then you've got to start looking elsewhere.
"We will keep doing that, we will keep badgering away and we will work with the ones here first to see if they can get through it but we can't give them that many games at this level because you drift away from some teams."
On Davis' glaring miss Johnson added: "That was a good bit of play and he's really got to be tucking that in. We had a header in the second half that when that goes in at the right time you're 1-0 up. There were some key moments that we didn't come out on top of and that's what we've got to assess.
"We're all disappointed we lost 2-0 at Burnley because we did enough for an hour to look like we could win. But we got less and less effective as the second half wore on."
