Any speculation surrounding the future of Gary Johnson at Yeovil Town has been dismissed by the club chairman, John Fry.

It followed concerns after the manager turned up late to the Portsmouth match and delegated his duties to his assistant, following his disappointment after the transfer deadline.

Gary Johnson has since told ITV News West Country that he remains committed to the club.

Today he met the chairman on his return from holiday and they have agreed that "communication problems'" were behind any perceived difficulties he had on Transfer Deadline Day last Monday, 1 September.

It was merely a question of the right people not being able to talk to each other. Gary and I have discussed things this morning and it is business as usual at Huish Park.

Gary has left with the team for Bradford fully focused on the job in hand determined to get three points at Valley Parade.
