Darren Way: 'Yeovil Town were in disarray against Notts County'

Joe Jones

Darren Way has admitted that Yeovil Town players were in disarray during the second half of their 4-1 loss at Notts County.

The Magpies took the lead on the stroke of half time as Dan Jones let rip with an audacious long-range effort which took a deflection and wrongfooted Glovers keeper John Maddison en route to goal.

Notts stepped up a gear in the second half, doubling their lead with a wonderful own goal from Tom James which soared into the top corner of the net from range.

The Glovers then unravelled at Meadow Lane as Elliott and Lewis Alessandra added more goals, before Alex Fisher scored an injury time consolation via a free kick.

Way admitted he was disappointed at the manner in which the game had got away from his players.

“When you look at Notts County, it’s very professional what they do, and we find ourselves 2-0 down, and then unfortunately we looked like we were in a little bit of chaos and the players couldn’t handle that pressure," he told Somerset Live.

“I’ve been here before, I know exactly what I’m managing, we’ve got some very young players out there and we’ve come up against a force today that unfortunately make the game very difficult and we explained to the players that Notts County are a club that are ready to take off again.

“They bring on Stead and Alessandra. Their squad is fully loaded with experience, and I don’t want to keep using that, but when you’re under a little bit of pressure and the experience that they can put you under, it looked as times as though they didn’t know what they were doing.

“I couldn’t say that about the whole first 45 minutes. I thought in the first half we played particularly well.”
