Yeovil - The Inquest

By: Bill Osborne
Date: 28/02/2005

RUSSELL Slade was spot on with his recent predictions. Last week he said; "I think we will beat Yeovil" and so we did! He also predicted that Parkinson, who has not really impressed lately "will click soon". Mr Parkinson 'clicked' alright - with a cracking goal!

Naturally, Slade was delighted, telling Mariners Net; "There's not many occasions when we've won two games back-to-back - we're obviously delighted with that," he said."We had to recover from an early setback - a mistake by Williams, it shouldn't have gone in from there. He knows that."

"It was my job at half-time to keep the boys positive, to say come there isn't anything going wrong here, we're doing fine, go out with a smile on your face and take the game to them. "We did recover to a certain extent in what I thought was a very even first half. However, neither keeper was tested too much in the first period."

"In the second period I thought that we went up a gear or two and tried to apply the pressure a bit more. I thought that we got a deserved equaliser through our persistence. Then we got Parky's little run for the winner, a terrific little run. All too often he's been unfortunate this season in not finishing it off but it's gone in for him."

"I thought that overall, with the chances that we created we deserved success."

"I thought that for the first time for a good number of weeks, we played with a certain freedom that we have played with away from home. I think that it was not coincidental with the fans getting right behind the side today - in the second period particularly,"

Yeovil boss Gary Johnson thought that the Mariners deserved to win.

"We did not deserve anything from this game" he told the Yeovil official site. "The only person to come out of it with any credit was Kevin Amankwaah."

"We were dead and we did not do anything. It was a shock to me and it was a shock to them."

"I'm disappointed, not just with the result but the performance. It was poor defending and the players will have to work hard in the next couple of days."

"They need to be reminded what they're here for."

"Fair play to Grimsby. They were lively in the second-half and scored a great goal. But we made it too easy for them. "

"We knew they would come out fighting but there was not enough about us."
