A brace by debutant striker Paddy Madden and a James Hayter strike handed the Somerset side a deserved win - ending a barren run of six straight defeats in League One.

Johnson poured cold water on reports that he is among the front-runners for The Cherries job - insisting he remains "100 per cent focused" on Yeovil Town.

He said: "It's nothing to do with me - I've not asked and have not had any contact from Bournemouth. This is the focus and we need to get Yeovil competing at this level. My job is here and I'm loving it."

On the match, he added: "It was nice to get the result and the performance, and we had to be a little bit patient early on.

"I was proud of the players and they all worked their socks off. We worked very hard after the Portsmouth game - we have been in all day everyday since, and the boys still showed they had the legs in the final minutes. I can sleep well because we've worked very hard as a team and a management team."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
