Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson believes that his side are still in a strong position to reach the League One playoff final.

Gary Johnson has insisted that Yeovil Town are in a "fantastic position" to make the final of the League One playoffs, despite losing the first leg of their semi-final with Sheffield United this evening.

A Callum McFadzean goal has given the Blades a 1-0 advantage heading into the second leg at Huish Park.

The Yeovil manager told Sky Sports News: "When it's two legs, you're not out of it, that's for sure. I'm disappointed with how the goal came about and it probably wasn't a beautiful game, but we gave it a go after the break, showed a bit more bravery on the ball and had our chances.

"We were a disappointed we didn't get at least one of the [penalty] appeals but it's not counted and we go into the second game one goal down which is a fantastic position to be in.

"We played our better stuff after the goal and being one goal down at Huish Park with our fans behind us making that noise I'm sure we can get that back."

The second leg takes place on Monday afternoon.
