Gary Johnson is not surprised by Yeovil’s flying start to the season – but is refusing to get carried away.

The Glovers remain unbeaten in League One, only dropping to second in the table on goal difference.

Johnson said he knew he had the talent and character to do well in the division and it was now about sustaining their start.

“When you bring people in you have to try very hard to bring in the quality that you think you need to win games at this level,” he said.

“You have to have the spirit, so you need the personalities and you have to have the work rate, so you need character.

“At the moment, it’s only four games and I will say that week-in week-out until we get to 40-odd, but we have got ten points, so we are in credit and, hopefully, we can use that as a nice little back up to take games to teams.

“If you are going to do well in the league you have got to take on all kinds of teams and we will see where the teams that we have already played end up at the end of the season.

“But for now we don’t know if there is a tough team around the corner that we haven’t come up against yet.

“Certainly people will be talking about us as having a good start and being a difficult team to beat.”

Johnson conceded there was no more his team could do to get fans through the gate as Tuesday’s gate against West Brom almost halved to 3,535 on Saturday.

He said: “How many times do you say it? There isn’t anything more I can do. I don’t think there is anything more the boys on the pitch can do.

“What you have got to remember is those that are here and not forget those that have come.”
