Gary Johnson: Delighted with victory

Joe Edwards fired the Glovers ahead after 51 seconds but they were indebted to a fantastic display from Marek Stech as the Railwaymen dominated long periods of the contest.

Johnson believes the hectic league schedule has caught up with his players and he will look to refresh them ahead of the forthcoming npower League One play-off campaign.

"It was not a fantastic victory but it was an important one," he said.

"The players will need a break mentally in the next week because we put them through the mill a bit.

"Obviously we lost our centre half early on and had to change our team quite a bit during the game, but they steered through the icebergs well."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
