REACTION | Phil Parkinson on Yeovil draw

13 August 2022

Wrexham AFC manager Phil Parkinson has shared his views on Saturday's 1-1 draw at Yeovil Town, as the Red Dragons picked up a point from the first away game of the campaign.

Paul Mullin's first-half goal was cancelled out after the break by an incredible effort from Yeovil's Malachi Linton, meaning the points were shared in testing conditions at Huish Park.

Speaking after the game, Parkinson discussed the result, team selection and our next test, against Chesterfield on Tuesday evening...

ON YEOVIL RESULT

"We got off to a great start and were looking for that second goal but I felt our quality let us down a little bit in the final third at crucial times - that weight of pass - so that was disappointing. In the second half, the lad has scored a goal which he'll probably never score again and that gave the crowd a huge lift. For 10 or 15 minutes, they were in the ascendency and we had to come through that period, and I felt we did. We got decent control after that and probably should have gone on to win the game. We always come [into games] looking for three points, but we'll take the point today.

"We have got quality, but the final pass didn't quite come off today. We've got some good creation in there with Elliot [Lee], Jordan [Davies] and Mulls and the weight of pass wasn't quite as good as we'd have liked. That's how you create chances: driving at people and slipping those passes in but we didn't get that quite right for whatever reason. The lads worked very hard in difficult conditions, and I know it's the same for both sides, but we had to dig deep and make sure we at least got a point."

ON PREPARATION

"We adapted the warm-up a little bit and shortened everything down because of the testing conditions. But, we went to Spain and trained and played in it, so we're used to it to a certain degree."

ON CHESTERFIELD

"We'll get back as quickly as we can tonight, and then the lads will be off tomorrow but in on Monday. We'll assess everything and look at Chesterfield's first couple of games and make decisions accordingly for the team."
