Alex failed to find a way past the in-form Marek Stech in the Glovers goal, as Joe Edwards' strike after just 51 seconds proved to be the difference between the two sides.

But Davis believes his side did all they could to get an equaliser and paid for an early lapse in concentration.

He said: "Everyone one of the players was excellent, I cannot fault them.

"We caused Yeovil all sorts of problems throughout the game even in the second half, but the only time we did not cause them problems was in the first minute of the game and it cost us.

"Our performance warranted more than we got. We've played games before where our finishing has not been good enough in the final third and that was the case here, plus we met a goalkeeper on form who made two or three fantastic saves.

"Unfortunately, we have just had one of those days."

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.
