STRIKER Jon Stead was miserable despite his 10th goal of the season at Yeovil and admitted: "We were outbattled."
The 20-year-old leading scorer had to agree with two fans who somehow found their way into the Town dressing room after the game and didn't leave until letting the players know exactly what they thought of the performance.
Stead returned after serving a one-match ban at Lincoln and netted an equaliser in front of 5,274 fans at Huish Park, but he was crestfallen as Town fell from the top seven play-off placings.
"I was pleased to get on the scoresheet first game back but gutted by the fact we were outbattled," said Stead.
"It was especially disappointing for the people who travelled a long way to support us and to be outbattled isn't good enough for ourselves and it definitely isn't good enough for the fans.
"We went to pot in the second half, just like at Lincoln, and five-yard passes were not going to feet, which was why we couldn't play our game.
"Having said that, we still created chances in the game, but there wasn't enough bite and that's disappointing.
"From now on we've really got to have a go at people and play football like we can, because this isn't good enough at all. Hopefully we will be back to our normal selves against Carlisle on Saturday."
Town have confirmed the LDV Vans Trophy trip to play Carlisle at Brunton Park will be on Tuesday, November 4 (7.45)
