INTERVIEW | Sarll grateful for fan support

Gaffer thankful for special moments with fans.

29 September 2019

Darren Sarll’s Yeovil Town extended the club’s winning run to seven after an eventful 3-1 victory over Bromley on Saturday. 

The meeting with the side sitting at the top of the National League table bought a bumper crowd to Huish Park.

3,960 fans crammed into the green and whites’ home to witness a battling victory over the previously unbeaten Ravens.

Speaking to YTTV on the special moments with the fans, the gaffer said:

“Let’s get behind Scott (Priestnall), let’s get behind me and my lads. You can see how much it means to them. 

“They love that moment at the end. Even before the game I heard them singing that song in the dressing room, that song’s driving me mad now!

“We’ll always make sure that the outcome is thought of last, and in that moment, when you’ve actually won the game, you can celebrate with such a great group of fans.”

The Glovers came out on top, through goals from Charlie Lee, Jimmy Smith and a Marc-Anthony Okoye own goal.

Despite the hard-fought victory, Sarll feels his side can still play much better.

“For the first 15 minutes of the game, regardless of the stoppage, I thought we were awful, really sloppy. We lacked focus, concentration, vigour.

“When we went 1-0 down, I thought we deserved to be 1-0 down. However, once we got the lead at 2-1, I thought that the play was us.

“During the first 15 minutes today, we showed a real lack of focus and I think that's the responsibility of the manager. Trust me they won’t be able to produce that rubbish again.

“We’re going to make sure that we re-address our performance levels and while we concentrate on our journey, and the bits you have to do to win.”

The clash with the Ravens began with a lengthy delay as Rhys Murphy and Mark Cousins collided on the edge of the box with both players seemingly knocked-out and later substituted.

‘’Rhys (Murphy) is fine, I’m not sure on (Mark) Cousins but everyone at Yeovil sends their best wishes to him to make a speedy recovery, I hope it’s not too long. 

‘’It’s one of those things in football, it’s a competitive game and a contact sport, unfortunately we all put ourselves at risk when we step out there.’’

Since Sarll spoke with YTTV, Bromley have confirmed that Cousins travelled back to Greater London with his teammates.
