Yeovil Town squad to be put through paces before Tranmere trip
Smiles may have returned to faces at Yeovil Town following their weekend win but the club's players will still be pushed the extra mile before Saturday's trip to Tranmere.
The Glovers visit unbeaten npower League One table toppers Rovers having ended a run of six defeats with a 3-1 triumph over Colchester United.
Manager Gary Johnson's squad report for training all day every day in the build-up to the victory and he said it would be no different this week.
"There are a lot of smiles on peoples' faces at the moment and we are going to work just as hard in the coming days because that seemed to help us get the team out there that we thought would compete," he said.

"There are some that were not in that starting line-up that I am sure would have competed if selected but we can only select 11.
"We are saying that to compete at this level that is the standard you need to achieve, the concentration you need and the quality you need.
"If we knew we were going to win that game 3-1 everybody would have really enjoyed it all the way through. The first 20 minutes were a little bit cat and mouse and maybe not as hectic as people like.
"What we are finding at this level is that you cannot throw caution to the wind because there are some decent players if you want to win as many as or more than you lose."
The boss was also in philosophical mood about last night's postponed Johnstone's Paint Trophy clash at Torquay United, which will now be played next Tuesday.
Johnson said: "We were disappointed. You can think about the pros and cons and we would have definitely liked to have played the game but unless we get any injuries in training it means we go to Tranmere with a similar squad.
"The lads are coming off the back of a good game, which is a pro, but the thing is you want to play the games as they come. But with the good old English weather, it is difficult to predict what is going to happen."
