Yeovil Town striker James Hayter spoke to BBC Somerset reporter Ron Walker on Saturday 14th February 2015 after his side had lost 3-0 against Doncaster Rovers.
RW: James, how do you assess a disappointing afternoon in South Yorkshire?
JH: Probably that's the right word really - disappointing. We didn't really get going. We conceded what was obviously a poor goal from our point of view. I thought we finished the first half well and we looked to try to get some momentum during the second half but the second goal really killed us to be honest. So that's disappointing and it's a disappointing afternoon, especially coming back to a club that I spent a lot of time at, and wanted to try to get a result. But we've just got to pick ourselves up and look to get ourselves going for next week now.
RW: Does it make it even more frustrating that the first two goals especially were from simple mistakes?
JH: Yes, that's something that we can address and it's something that we've spoken about. It's something that we've been better lately at, but it's disappointing that it is individual mistakes, and it's something that we've got to look to try to cut out, and look to push on and try to get that first goal if we can in the game. It's always that when you're down near the bottom, it knocks your confidence a little bit when you concede.
RW: After the first goal when you were getting at the defence or running out wide, you did look dangerous on occasions.
JH: Yes, I thought that especially towards the end of the first half we had a couple of good opportunities. Gozie got himself some good opportunities, with defenders making last ditch blocks and stuff like that, and if one of those goes in then it's a different game at that time as that makes it 1-1. But it wasn't to be and we've just got to dust ourselves off. We've got a full week's training now with the new management team and we've got to try to get some confidence for next week.
RW: Now a real opportunity to play out in front of your home fans next Saturday.
JH: Yes definitely. We're still not a million miles away, so we know that if we can pick up some results quickly, we can get ourselves out of this situation. We've just got to build on our confidence and look to pass and move the ball and hopefully get some results, especially at home.
