'If It's Football, It's Vital'

A Different Disappointment For Yates

Manager Mark Yates has said he feels a different kind of disappointment following our draw against Plymouth Argyle yesterday. He was disappointed we didn't come away with all three points, following what he felt was a much improved performance and response to the game against Accrington Stanley.

Speaking to the Official Site following the one all draw, Yates was definitely in a happier mood following the performance he saw, but he was definitely pleased to see us play well in the second as he commented he wouldn't have wanted to pay to watch the first 45 from either team on the day.

'I thought we played some really good football in the second half. I watched the first half from the stands and to be honest I wouldn't have wanted to pay to watch that from both sides. We stopped them from playing and we did a good job on them, but I wanted more from my team in the second half - more enthusiasm, drive and craft and I thought we got that. We're a bit disappointed but on the back of a few defeats it was a much improved performance.'

Yates goes on to say the biggest thing he was pleased about was the work rate from the team on the day, and we do look a much better side and give ourselves a chance of our quality coming through, when we do put the effort in and that for him really showed in the second half.

'There were plenty more positives than last week and a much better performance. Hopefully we can keep putting them in between now and the end of the season.'

Yates also added that he felt we were good value for the lead when we took it, but he was a bit annoyed we didn't manage to build on that and add a second to give us a bit of a buffer, but that's football sometimes unfortunately, and through not taking our chances, we were always going to be vulnerable to them grabbing a leveller and that's what they did.

As for the transfer window, he added that he doesn't see us signing anyone permanently, he thinks his additions will now be loans, but he's not rushing because despite the window closing, the loan window opens a week later so he does have time to assess things and doesn't need to rush into anything. what that means for the deals and talks that were going on with a few free agents is anybodies guess at the moment.
