Huntington: Red card was costly
Yeovil boss Gary Johnson was too shell-shocked to talk following his side's 6-0 drubbing by Stevenage at Huish Park.
Johnson, whose return to the Somerset side had seen them climb to virtual safety after a season-long battle with relegation, sent out club skipper Paul Huntington to do the job.
Michael Woods' 33rd-minute dismissal proved pivotal as Boro ran riot.
Huntington said: "We started quite brightly but the sending off changed things. It was not an intentional challenge but (Woods) caught the lad. Then we just caved in.
"This has never happened to me before and we have to try to put it right next week. It is terrible and it is down to us players.
"We shouldn't be in the position where we are still looking over our shoulders. It is such a big disappointment after we worked so hard to get where we have."
