'We did not affect the game' - Darren Sarll on Yeovil Town's defeat to Chesterfield

Yeovil Town boss Darren Sarll felt his team lacked their ‘normal punch’ as they were punished by Chesterfield on Saturday.

The Spireites had the best chances in the first half through Jak McCourt and Akwasi ASante but were denied by some good goalkeeping from the visitors’ Adam Smith.

But Town were clinical after the break as Asante, Tom Whelan and McCourt ensured the in-form Glovers, who were 10th in the National League table before kick-off, suffered just their second defeat in seven matches.

“I did not think we packed our normal punch,” Sarll said after the game.

“The biggest disappointment for me is we did not have that normal thrust to us

“At no point did I feel we were going to break anyone down today.

“What I said to them at half-time was that I felt like we were waiting for something to happen.

“I think when I put it into context we are still in great form, today does not stop that.”

He added: “I have said it in the press, since the turn of the year, it feels a bit like snakes and ladders this season. We roll the dice right one week and we climb the ladder quickly and you roll the dice wrong one week and you slip down the snake.

“I think it is important we put today in a little box because we can’t affect it. We have had our chance to affect it and we did not do that in any way shape or form.”
