Manager Chris Hargreaves was 'quietly' pleased following our fight and spirit in the Yeovil friendly where we came from behind on two occasions to take the draw.
Courtney Cameron and Elliot Benyon secured us the draw against the returning League One side, and speaking to the Official Site following the game the gaffer said he was particularly impressed with the performances of our youngsters on the evening.
Of course the trialists he gave a chance to also didn't do themselves any harm, and he's already admitted that he's hoping to secure deals with some of them anyway.
'It was a good test and I thought we retained a good shape after a frenetic first half. We've got to work really hard out of possession and we looked dangerous on the break. In the second half, we brought so many young players onto the pitch and they all wanted the ball, which is refreshing to watch. Levi Ives was excellent in the first half, the new lads did well and the trialists performed under pressure.'
The gaffer goes on to say the final equaliser was a piece of great play from Niall Thompson, and he knows it was a difficult position for him to perform in because we are 'ask(ing) him to learn' to play right back slot and be defensively minded when he is predominantly a winger, but Hargreaves is convinced he can make the position his own given his speed and strength and be an asset both defensively as well as offensively in the future.
'He learned two lessons tonight. One, as an overlapping full back, and the other to turn his shoulder as a defender. He will learn from their second goal and he reacted to that by created the equaliser.'
The gaffer ends by saying.
'Yeovil are a strong outfit and they have a lot of players with Championship experience, while we had kids out there, but we did well.'
