Gary Johnson accepts Yeovil Town's winning run will eventually come to an end but hopes it is not until they are entrenched in the play-off spots.

Saturday's 3-0 triumph over promotion-chasing Brentford meant just goal difference keeps them out of npower League One's top six.

The Glovers have won their last five and despite confidence being sky high at Huish Park, manager Johnson knows that victorious streak will eventually stop.

"Someone's going to do us soon but hopefully not too soon and before we are right in there," he said.

"We have got to be right in the mix. We have almost got ourselves right in the mix, but not quite as we are not above that line.

"Every game we go into, I'm confident in that group of lads that they're going to compete and show that desire that's needed to get into that play-off spot."

Paddy Madden broke the deadlock against the Bees before Ed Upson's emphatic drive doubled the advantage and Dan Burn sealed the win late on.

Johnson joked he was claiming an assist for Upson goal and said: "He had been a big sloppy a couple of times.

"He lost the ball and in his frustration kicked out to get the booking. We were calming him down in my special way and he probably had that little bit of anger in him "It shows you that it doesn't matter how that desire comes, they have got the way to put it in. I'm claiming an assist for both the second and third."

Keeper Marek Stech proved Yeovil's early hero, making a string of fine saves to keep Clayton Donaldson amongst others at bay.

And thankfully for the home faithful, a mobile telephone in the dugout failed to ring during the game with news on heavily-pregnant partner.

Johnson said: "He made two fantastic saves. Keepers have to do that, that's their job. The only disappointment for him is that he said he would name his firstborn after the first goalscorer. He's got to call it Paddy Stech and I'm not sure that's got a ring about it."
