Johnson blasts Glovers for exit

Yeovil boss Gary Johnson was quick to criticise his side after their JPT exit to Leyton Orient in front of their 815 travelling fans.

David Mooney's 90th-minute goal earned 10-man Orient a 1-0 win and a place in the Southern Area final at the expense of the Glovers.

"I have to say we didn't do very well," Johnson said.

"Orient have got their goal, the whole game was poor and no-one can be proud of that, neither team. But they've got themselves through and all we can do is to wish them well because they've beaten us.

"But we've now got a lot to do, a lot of soul-searching to do because unfortunately we had a few players that didn't turn up. I don't think they meant not to turn up but we certainly didn't play near to how we've been playing in the last couple of weeks.

"It was a scrappy game and we weren't able to rise above it. I'm really gutted as a manager because I don't like losing games, any games, and certainly not scrappy games. You have to do a bit more than we did to earn a result.

"The team we had out there should have looked as if they really, really wanted to win the game, I think in their heads they did but we didn't play well enough with our feet or with our cleverness or in our football.

"Orient were winners on the night, we know why and I've got to do something about it."
