Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson tells players secure play-offs before aiming higher
Secure a play-off spot and then have a crack at the top two is the message from Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson to his players.
The high-flying Glovers climbed to fourth in npower League One on Saturday, beating Tranmere Rovers to leapfrog their rivals.
Although just a win away from returning to the automatic promotion places for the first time since the opening games of the year, Johnson said his squad must focus on one target at a time.
"They have worked their socks off out of possession and worked very hard in possession, and that's what you have got to do to be one of the play-off or promotion teams," he said.

"We have now got 11 games to go, we know what we have got to do. We have got to hang on in that group of six teams and see if we can't consolidate a play-off spot first.
"When we get that we will see how many games we have got to give it a bit of a go. But the boys are giving it a go, they're playing like Trojans at the moment."
With crowds slowly growing for Huish Park games, Johnson said the atmosphere created by the 4,826 fans on Saturday was reminiscent of his first spell in charge that brought two promotions and the FA Trophy.
He said: "The crowds are unbelievably important. Many of those people were here previously when we had promotions and we are building up to that intense support that puts opposition under pressure because they are shouting for everything and cheering for everything.
"It helps our lads and it's that positive support that can help your team all the way.
"Our home form has been very good and our support is growing and getting noisier because they are beginning to believe that we have got a team that is going to challenge for promotion."
