Following yesterday's disappointing 4-0 defeat at Yeovil, here are some views on the game from the Glovers' manager Terry Skiverton and a few of their fans.
Skiverton felt it was a well deserved victory for his side.
"We created eight or nine clear scoring chances, and that's no disrespect to Wycombe, but we were well worth these points," he said.
Happy with his strength in depth, the Yeovil boss added: "I brought on three substitutes in Andy Welsh, Jon Obika and Scott Murray and they all enhanced the team and left with me with a few selection problems before we go to Swindon."
Skiverton then praised the quality of his team's finishing: "We were having our worst spell at the start of the second half before we got those goals, but they were certainly great goals and well worth waiting for," he said.
The Yeovil fans were delighted with such a big win but were quick to praise their keeper's contribution.
The following extracts are taken from 'the green room' and 'The Football Forum.'
Madge Cutler wrote:
'it was a massacre but it took two corking saves from McCarthy to stop them levelling at 1-1.'
'Apart from a 10 minute period when Wycombe made McCarthy pull off a couple of cracking saves it always looked as though we would counter attack them to death after the opener.'
'I appreciate we got the first goal but I thought the first-half was lacking any real fire from either side. In fact Wycombe were making some nice triangles and cutting us up in places. I reckon at half-time our team had a rocket up their backsides.'
'McCarthy saved the game for us really. If they had levelled at 1-1 we would have found it difficult to score again. Some of the best saves I've ever seen.'
'A truly wonderful performance from McCarthy, made even better by the fact that he's got a bug that meant he nearly didn't play today.'
'Against better quality we would have conceded at least once today. However, our team is set up in such a way that we seem equally capable of scoring as we do conceding. I like the team to play in this way - it makes for an exciting spectacle.'
'It's strange how we win 4-0 and the MOTM is our goalie but all credit to McCarthy, at 1-0 he made a few very good saves to keep us ahead. Scoreline flattered us in the end and I'm just very glad we managed to hold onto a lead. The 4-0 was hard on Wycombe though, they committed men forward in search of the equaliser and got caught short at the back.'
