The high-flying Glovers returned to winning ways after a midweek defeat at Colchester courtesy of Ed Upson's second-half free-kick.

Johnson was delighted with his side's energetic display, which saw the Glovers extend their impressive League One run to nine wins in 11 - and seven successive home victories.

He said: "We've had that little blip now. All teams are going to have a time when they get beaten, so we needed to bounce back. This was a big game against one of our main promotion rivals.

"We needed a result and the boys worked hard to stay in the game. I think there is no way anyone can say we didn't deserve to win. We had plenty of chances and scored from a set-play.

"When you go a goal up it gives everyone the confidence to get on the ball, and we played some good stuff on a difficult surface. We knew they were going to go slightly longer to the big lads up front, but we dealt with that and went up the other end and created chances.

"I haven't looked at the table yet, it's too early, but I know the results and they matter. There's a couple of teams having a longer blip than we have had, and we have been in a good run of form over the last 12 games.

"The support we're getting is growing and the fans are getting behind us. They are seeing their team giving absolutely everything."

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.
