Yeovil have got two points from their last five games, and we're at home. Time to show a reaction and pick up three badly needed points, we really can't afford another performance like on Tuesday night.

It's hard not to replay Tuesday's shambles over and over in your head but it's time to move on. Yeovil at home is a game we should be winning. You'd expect a reaction from Notts and I think we'll get one. 2-0 to Notts.

It was worse @DangerousSausage

Started off quite promising for the first few minutes. Yeovil started the game with the high press, but we managed to get through it and created a couple of really good chances. We then went right off the boil and the rest of the half was pretty average.

Second half we were woeful. Awful header from Francis to put us in a mess and although Jaros managed to block the first effort, he had no chance with the goal as he was out of his area. 

Never put them under any real pressure and got lucky with the equaliser. 

Highlight of the day for me was the Melee. Tempers were frayed, so our response was to bring on that timid soul DKE! Their number 14 was subbed to stop him getting sent off from another foul and I thought Ruben was going to go with his reactions to the ref not giving him anything.

I think at the moment unless something changes, we'll struggle to make the playoffs, we're not a big or physical enough a side and if teams press us we struggle as we only have one playing style.

That's a good summary.  Based on the clear cut chances we created in the first half it's a game we should have won, but once we had given them a goal we were truly awful and a bit fortunate that their marking was lacking in stoppage time.  We look good when we are on it, but hard working, well organised, but limited teams like Yeovil cause us more problems than they should.  I think we'll make the playoffs, but winning them looks a bit of a dream at the moment.
