Manager pleased with response

Dougie Freedman praises his side's battling, second-half performance at Yeovil

Dougie Freedman praised his side’s battling response to going two goals down at Yeovil on Saturday afternoon.

Wanderers clawed their way back into the clash after the interval, with goals from Lukas Jutkiewicz and Zat Knight securing a point for Wanderers despite the sending off of Alex Baptiste.

Speaking in his post-match press conference, Freedman said: “I thought we did well the first ten minutes and were unlucky not to take the lead as we had quite a few chances, but we just didn’t take them.

“From thereon in though, Yeovil did very well though and thoroughly deserved their two goal lead.

“There were some harsh words at half time and we came out in the second half with a different approach which led to a goal that gave us a massive boost. We’d changed our shape to allow us to be a little bit quicker on the break.

“The penalty itself however gave us an even bigger boost and we then went on to secure what I believe is a deserved point.

“I have absolutely no qualms about the penalty decision or Alex Baptiste’s sending off at all.

“In the end, we’re actually disappointed not to take all three points as we did very well in the latter stages but a point was the least we deserved.”
