Competitive Glovers please boss

Yeovil manager Terry Skiverton is impressed with how his depleted Glovers side are still managing to compete in League One.

Skiverton: Hails team spirit

Yeovil lost 3-2 at home to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, having at one stage led 2-1, but were without Gavin Williams, Andy Williams and Jon Obika - among others.

And despite the result Skiverton was delighted by how far the Huish Park outfit stretched their guests.

"We can't quite get over there, but we're not wilting and we're not dying. We're matching these teams," he said.

"I know we're at home, but I thought we played the better football. I thought we switched play well. We got Alan O'Brien into some great one-on-ones. Anthony Edgar caused them trouble and, with the pace that we had up front, we've got a decent side.

"To have that many injuries and that many people out, and still to be cracking away and still be pushing people is great."
