Johnson Apologises For Lacklustre Performance

14 December 2014

Manager Lee Johnson apologised to all supporters after seeing his side lose 4-0 at home to relegation-threatened Yeovil Town.

In a battle between Father and Son, it was Gary Johnson that prevailed comfortably, and the Latics boss issued a public apology to all supporters after his side's performance. 

He said: "All I can do as a manager of a football club is apologise to our supporters for that performance. I do believe that some players let us down on the day and hopefully it was a one off. Some of the traits were very worrying. What more can I do than apologise? 

"We haven't set them out to go like that and it was a strong team that we put out. We lost Forte before the game and Liam Kelly however it was still a strong and experienced side we put out there and I'm very disappointed for multiple reasons. 

"All I can do is apologise to everyone and thank them for their support. If there was a man of the match, it would have to go to the fans."

The gaffer had some harsh words for his players after the game. "Surprisingly none of the players apologised to us and I think that is something that should be done," commented the 33-year-old.

"We are at a stage where I've got to pick a team for MK Dons but we are going to a difficult place. If we turn up like that, we will lose by 10.

"I wanted to win that game more than anything because it would have set us up. Fair play to my Dad for what he did and there team was better than ours."
