Audio interview with Keith Curle from BBC Radio Nottingham (RealPlayer needed)

Yeovil manager Gary Johnson, normally an affable character, was asked if he had challenged the referees decisions.

"I wont do that for a week," he said. "I will when I have calmed down - I don't want to have to go before the FA along with Sam Allardyce." His opposite number Keith Curle said: "Sometimes you get those decisions, sometimes you don't. It is just one of those things." The managers agreed it was a excellent advert for the third division and Johnson added: "Although I am disappointed not to get the three points I thought we deserved, I was pleased that we got our form back and we are still in their chasing promotion."

Yeovil manager Gary Johnson was furious after the referee refused to give the Glovers a clear-cut penalty.

"I can't believe it wasn't given," said Johnson.

"It was a poor decision and it will take me a week to calm down before I speak to the referee, as I don't want a trip to London."

Johnson added: "I thought we did enough to win the game.

"We were creating chances and we seem to have got our form back.

"We played some great football but that penalty really should have been given."
